Hi Jeffbarish,

Yes, sure you need to update the registry values for the .py/.pyc file 
assotiation to be able to tap again and run python files.  Thought you 
could use the 'old' 2.3 setup-registry, it will update the registry 
keys. I don't know if you have got this in your current 2.3 install, so 
I've attached the files. Place them on the python lib folder (/program 
files/python/lib) and tap on the .lnk file, it will re-associate the 
python.exe from that folder with the .py files. Also probably would need 
to update the start menu link, you will have to make a new one for the 
new python.exe.

Finally, I'd like to ask some questions!! I haven't heard of anybody 
using python on a windows mobile! sure your answers will be interesting 
for all!!

Are you using python on windows mobile 5 with success? ARM cpu? Does 
wxwindows run fine? What kind of use you give to it?

Thank you for your reply !! :-)
