Check your directory for python files (could be hidden) called "new"! Also check for folders... If you found any you have to rename them :)

ALSO CHECK FOR HIDDEN FILES AND FILES IN:

Your python-path (mine is C:\Python).

Also check for imports called new? If all fails post us your code...

Hello. Sorry for repost and bad english.

I searched all files and directories but only got: new.py in C:\Python27\Lib.

I tried to rename it to: NEW.py but it didn't solve the erro. Please help!

new_instancemethod = new.instancemethod

Hi, I found the solution :P
That is my error because of creating new.py in my working dir.

DONT rename the standard library modules ! Also in windows, you can use a small app locate 32 to find files named new.py !

Thanks! I am new to Python. Sometime, I created files with the same name as standard library :3
