    Python - Permissions?

    Mornin' All!

    We've had Python installed for a while, but not used since we replaced the PCs over summer, now the students can't access the GUI, but staff/admins can...

    I've tinkered with the permissions on the C:\Python32 folder and even tried (temporarily) giving pupils full access to it, but still no joy...

    I didn't do anything differently last time, just a standard install, so not sure what's gone wrong now...

    Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Just bumping this - I put it in with other Python posts, but should have really put it in Educational Software...

    Still no further on if anyone's got any suggestions...

    You haven't got a software restriction / applocker policy applying to students and not staff have you?

    Nope, not for Python... it was working previously, and I've not changed any GPOs or settings...
    The only difference is that they're 64 bit machines now, but that shouldn't be an issue because it's working for staff...

    Very odd, and the lead ICT Teacher's tearing her hair out, desperate to get using it again...

    What version of windows are you running?

    Check the shortcut path is looking in the right place for example Program file (x86) if its a 32 bit program on a 64 bit machine.

    It's Windows 7 64bit, but the default installation directory for Python is C:\Python32 if you look at the shortcut though, the target's not the exe or anything, and creating a shortcut directly to the exe doesn't work either...

    Resolved... Daftly... Kicking myself now...

    The students have a redirected Start Menu, I was trying the shortcut from a network area before I put it in their Start Menu...
