Just a wild guess: when you double-click you could have a
different working directory than when you run from Project
Builder. You could put some debug output in your embedding
application (for instance print the working directory, or set
the Py_VerboseFlag to 1 before calling Python), and the output
will appear in the console window
I'm also not 100% sure which Python initialize routine you need
to call if your Python scripts want access to Carbon methods. I
think Py_Initialize() may be good enough, but it could be that
you have to use PyMac_Initialize() (as in MacPython). Or maybe
you even need something completely different (i.e.
Py_Initialize() plus some of the stuff in PyMac_Initialize().
Maybe someone else has already experimented with embedding
MachoPython and has information to share?
