May be I dint install wx correctly. I am using python 2.4 and i was unable to find wx module for python 2.4. I downloaded wx for python 2.5 and paste the wx folder in python 2.4 directory. Can you please guide me how to add wx module in python 2.4?

You could compile from source code with same C compiler as was used for your Python version.

Why not just upgrade to Python 2.7.2? Or you are using embedded Python inside an application?
