The reason why IDLE failed to launch is due to stderr=None when using pythonw.exe. The first Warning message cause IDLE to abort. See issue13582 for more details and a solution to the problem of IDLE not starting.

Cain, your home directory should contain a folder named ".idlerc". Within this folder are a few configuration files for IDLE. The warning messages indicate that you are missing "config-highlight.cfg" which contained the definitions for the "desert" theme. Try renaming "config-main.cfg" to something else and relaunch IDLE. This will force IDLE to use its default settings.
