I install python 2.7 in windows xp 32bit. 
I try to open idle using "C:\Python27>python.exe Lib\idlelib\", But return error as following:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "Lib\idlelib\", line 11, in <module>
  File "C:\Python27\Lib\idlelib\", line 1421, in main
    shell = flist.open_shell()
  File "C:\Python27\Lib\idlelib\", line 289, in open_shell
    if not self.pyshell.begin():
  File "C:\Python27\Lib\idlelib\", line 1009, in begin
    client = self.interp.start_subprocess()
  File "C:\Python27\Lib\idlelib\", line 402, in start_subprocess
    self.port = self.rpcclt.listening_sock.getsockname()[1]
  File "C:\Python27\Lib\", line 224, in meth
    return getattr(self._sock,name)(*args)
socket.gaierror: [Errno 10104] getaddrinfo failed
it's fine if using "C:\Python27>python.exe Lib\idlelib\ -n". it doesn't work after i try to close firewall.

This is probably a duplicate of other issues. But please try with the newest 2.7.5.
