Okay this is my solution

  • Go to Control Panel
  • Click System
  • Click the Advanced Tab
  • Click environment variables down the bottom
  • In the bottom scrollbox click on Path
  • Click edit
  • To the end of the list add this: ;C:\python25;C:\python25\scripts
  • If your python is not python 2.5 or is installed in a different directory you will need to change the paths to point to python.exe and the place where you keep your scripts.
  • Click okay
  • Now if you type python in the command line it should change to the python.exe interpreter

Hope that works
