I am using the book, Beginning Programming with Python For Dummies and I am stuck. On chapter 10 of the book, there is a dialog box that says"Changing the current python directory". Inside the dialog box there is an instruction on how to change directory, which I followed. I typed: "os.chdir(C:\the python root directory) and press enter and my problem started. The application can't run anything again. When I try to run, I get this message "IDLE's subprocess didn't make connection. Either IDLE cant start a subprocess or personal firewall software is blocking the connection". I have re-installed many times, tried google to see if i can find anything but none has helped.
I am new in programming and I will really appreciate your assistant.
