Try starting a command window(aka DOS Box) and typing
C:\python> python tools\idle\idle.py
And see if any errors appear. It could be that Python/idle
is writing errors to stdout which you can't see. These might
give you a clue as to what's going wrong.
When you installed idle0.5 did you keep the original version?
Is the shortcut pointing at the original or the new version?
