The error message pinpoints the problem in OptionMenu.py at line 14. The code has an inconsistent mixture of tabs and spaces. As you probably know, Python heavily depends on a consistent indentation to form the code structure. The webpage at this address has some useful information about Python indentation.

so i have to open each file and check for inconsistent use of tabs, is there any easier around this, i might just have to use the standard tkinter scroll bars instead

You only have to check files that raise an exception. Pythonwin can be configured to show mixed tabs and spaces. I can get ugly!
