This works just fine- I would expect it to.

This also works just fine. I've tried both switches independently, and
the scrip runs normally when I use either and both at the same time.
If I don't use them, then Python2.3 is being invoked somehow.

However, when I type set PYTHONPATH and

at the cmd prompt

Environment variable PYTHONPATH not defined

Environment variable PYTHONHOME not defined

Very strange indeed. It's starting to remind me of an episode from The
Twilight Zone ;-)

Is ti possible that my registry is corrupted?
