Hello Experts,

I'm trying to run the attached python file. I have no clue about Python. I installed the Windows release 3.6 of Python and when I try use the Python application to open the file I get the following output:

python1
I'm not sure what to do with the information.

Also when I try to execute the python file in windows I get the following output:

python2

Can someone let me know how to execute this file?

Cheers

Carlton

Seems like good ol' Phyton 2:

Python3 syntax changed it to:

print("Hello world!")

Either install Python 2, or adjust your script manually to correct all print commands (could be some other commands besides print might need adjustments as well)

The file is Python 2.7 not 3.0

Print ("hello world") instead of print "hello world"

Do as it says

You should also install Python 2.7 and remove 3

Python 3 is not as mainstream as 2.7

Yes you said it already. But what action did you take AFTER the first question?

I think your host ID is wrong, contains invalid characters or the location where it is being read is wrong.

create a file called hostid. in the same path as the py and enter the host id as hexadecimal chars,

i.e 0-9 a-f

ensure you enter no other characters space, carriage return/line feed {enter}, tab.

save and rerun

Sorry your reason makes no sense
I have to object to this being deleted

It is correct, he may have found an answer, but that's for a problem that came AFTER the original problem. Technically, it doesn't make any sense indeed.
