I am seeking assistance with Geany 1.23.1 which has been installed on a Notebook running Windows 8.

Just a note that I am not aware that Geany has ever been officially tested on win8.  Has the terminal program changed?  Check that the terminal command in the preferences is correct for your win8 system.  Note that as of 1.23 it is now a complete command, not just the name of the terminal program, so you can set options if you need to.  The %c is substituted by the command file name.


The problem is that when a Pyton file is executed it seems to execute OK but the command module flashes onto the screen and then disappears straight away.  So no “Press any key to continue” message appears.  I am assuming this is an issue with Geany but may be one with Python; my IT knowledge is scant and I am not even sure what the correct question to ask is.


The version of Python being used is WinPython-32bit- which has been installed into C:\WinPython-32bit-2-7-5-1.  Initially Geany issued a message that Python is not recognized until I included in the system variables path ;C:WinPython-32bit-2-7-5-1\Scripts.  At this point the issue started occurring.  Have changed the path to exclude the \Scripts part and if I do Python is again not recognized.

You certainly need python to be recognised.



I have no idea what needs to be done to fix this matter and hope someone can help.
