Python 2.5 IDLE crashes -immediately- upon open, leaving enough time to hold down the enter button on the executable and only have the pythonw process show up one-at-a-time.

This is version specific, as 2.4 Final worked fine.  Now all applications cannot run.  I made sure to uninstall 2.4 before installing 2.5, so it isn't a version conflict (as far as I can tell).

Running Windows XP SP2 on an HP Laptop (paviliion dv4000) and am attempting to run the program OpenRPG+.  Program can be provided for replication of test as necessary.

Duplicate processes are not observed in Windows Task Manager and a complete uninstallation and installation of the Python 2.5 language provides the same unknown error.

(edit)  Forgot to mention that the problem is pythonw.exe specific as well.  Python DOS runs fine, I can only get it to register a token error by typing in the following at the prompt: 1234816587613289741-0152872349817230987 .

I'm sorry, I can't understand your report.  Please tell me exactly how you are starting IDLE (using the icon? using a command window?)  What does OpenRPG+ have to do with it, are you calling it along with IDLE?  If so, please give me the command line and a url for the program.

What does your "edit" have to do with the problem?  The second number is illegal, because although it's coded as an octal (starts with 0) it has characters greater than 7 in it.  Fix either of those issues, and it's fine.
