I am troubleshooting an install of Python 2.5.2 for Windows XP. I can open up the command line without issue. - My problem is wih IDLE. I know nothing about python, this is strictly "playing".
At the command line in the python directory I can try to start IDLE:
C:\Python25> python Lib/idlelib/idle.py
Warning: unable to create user config directory F:\.idlerc Check path and permissions.
Where is this path F:\coming from? It needs to be C:\.
