As far as I can tell, my problem seems to be quite simple. The solution, however, may not be quite as simple.
The application I am trying to make work is python 3. I also have python 2 installed, but that works fine.
The problem is at the command prompt I would like to be able to type Code:
and have it launch the python 3 ****l. Currently, all I get is Code:
'python3' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
If I type Code:
Python 2.6.5 (r265:79096, Mar 19 2010, 21:48:26) [MSC v.1500 32 bit (Intel)] on
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
it already launches python 2 (which is correct).
I have already tried to put python3 as a system and user environment variable, in As far as I know the same way as python is set up. I changed this at the system properties window and then going to environment variables on the "Advanced" tab.
if I type Code:
at the command prompt, I believe it should confirm this (please correct me if i'm mistaken)
So, have I done something wrong, or left a step out? Please let me know if you need more info.
I should point out that typing a hard link to python3 using the address above does work, but I would like the shortcut for convenience (and to work out why it doesn't work in the first place)
My system for the record is Windows 7 64bit. Although both python installations are 32 bit versions (although i'm fairly sure that is trivial)
