Re: multiple Python versions,but on Windows (how to handle registry updates)

En Fri, 09 May 2008 07:58:33 -0300, Banibrata Dutta <ba************ *@gmail.comescr ibió:
I already have Python25, and need to install Python24. I would prefer not to
remove Python25, but each Python version seems to update the registry, I
guess (not sure), overwriting each other's entries. Any way to have both
versions ?
They can coexist peacefully. The last one you install will be the default version to handle .py files automatically.

You may want to create a batch file like this:

<begin python24.cmd>
@c:\python24\py thon.exe %*
<end python24.cmd>

(and a similar one for 2.5; put them somewhere on your PATH, like c:\windows\syst em32)
Usage: python24 somescript.py

Any advise on good reading, and some python examples ?

Hi everybody! Recently, I am having more and more problems with the fact that my Python version is far ahead of the Python versions I have to write scripts for (CGI servers, LAN servers & clients etc. of customers, ISPs etc.).

Would there be issues (registry settings, environment variables, whatever) if a person tried to install versions 1.x and 2.x simultaneously on one Windows system? Windows 98, if it matters. (I can handle the file associations with no problem.) Thanks. **************************
