Does it run if you type just the file name? For example:
If it runs like that, then it should run from a double-click. Do you
have multiple versions of Python installed? Is "Quitter.py" in the same
directory as the script? Can you check the associations from a command
line using the assoc and ftype commands, like this:
python.file="C:\Apps\Python26\python.exe" "%1" %*
python.noconfile="C:\Apps\Python26\pythonw.exe" "%1" %*
Your path will probably be different, but the philosophy should be the same.
