Three points of order, then a response, all at the proper place, after 
the portion of your message I'm quoting.

1) please don't top-post.  In this forum, as in most mailing lists, your 
response should go after the portion of whatever message you're quoting.

2) please use text mode email.  By posting in an html format, you cause 
the lines of the message to run together.  No harm done in this case, 
but it's a bad habit to get into.

3) please use reply-all, or use other means to make sure you include 
tutor at python.org as a recipient.  You sent this message to me only, and 
I don't reply to private emails.

As for your error, you're apparently not running this from a cmd prompt, 
but from pyshell. So you've introduced other variables into the 
equation, and somebody else will have to help.

Put those lines in a text file, and run them as:

c:\  >>  python3  myfile.py

and see what error you get then. At that point, you know what Python 
will do.  If your shell gives worse results, then you have to figure out 
the shell.
