Version 2.5a does not start with Windows XP

Postby fernfel » Wed Jun 20, 2012 16:47

Just installed the latest version and when I try to start the canvas id does not function. Just nothing happens...

Strange, as i worked with an older version of orange a while ago without having problems. The Python basis is 2.7 from enthought. Importing the package in the console does not give any error...

Any suggestions?

Can you try running Orange canvas from the command line
Code: Select all
python C:\Python27\Lib\site-packages\Orange\OrangeCanvas\orngCanvas.pyw
(assuming standard install)
