# SPE problem

The SPE python editor thing won’t open for me.

Does anyone know how i can fix this?

Which OS do you use, which version of python?
Do you get any error messages?
If not, can you run it from the command line and see if there are any error messages there?
Is there anything like a manual or FAQ on the SPE website that could help you?

I am on windows xp (getting vista)

version 0.8.2 i think

i didnt get an error, but what happened once was that i reinstalled it and it started to pop up with the box scrolling through text that would quickly close.

idonno how to run it from command line

and im not sure about the FAQ

How to run from command line in windows:

Start > Run > cmd.exe

find out the path to the SPE executable, for example, if c:\program files\spe\spe.exe, type:

"C:\Program Files\SPE\spe.exe"

Hmmm ive tried it and it hasnt been working…

@cadoink: And? error messages? What did go wrong then???

it says

‘C:\Program’ is not recognized as an internale or external command, operable program or batch file.

You forgot to put it in double-quotes:

           V                                                          V
C:\>   "c:\program files\path\to\spe.exe"
/\                                                          /\

By the way. If SPE doesn’t work, simply take another editor.
Try PSPad. It’s also a good editor with lots of programming languages supported.

cannont find the path specified it says…

ill take a look at that PSPad

hey lol, pspad is awesome…but how do i compile with it?

Dunno excactly, try something like highlighter settings, then select python, set c:\panda3d-1.3.2\python\ppython.exe as compiler, now, press something like file>compile and it should work?

thanks, i think i have it working. Time to learn python
