Forgive my continued ignorance. Changing the extension works fine in XP to
suppress the console window, but I don't understand how to enter the command
you suggested in CE. Did you find a console for CE that permits you to type
in commands? Does CE come with one (that I have been unable to locate)?
I also posted a related question last week, but I never saw my message in the
digest (which happens frequently). I am also wondering what the procedure is
for attaching an icon to my application so that I can run the application by
tapping the icon? And, to be precise, what I would like is to run my Python
program in such a way that the console window does not appear. Perhaps
tapping the icon would run the command that you suggested above.
