Before I get into the subject of this thread, I would like to thank GameDev for its brilliance and formidable catter for knowledge. This has helped wrap my mind towards understanding whether or not game development truly has a sparkle in me --which has been proven mighty true-- and subsequently find my whereabouts on how to get started.
Now as for my current issue...
How do you install Python 3.3 on Windows 8?
The primary issue, as it stands, is not necessairly in installing Python but in making accessing the following:
- Setting the PATH Variable.
- Running Python Prompt on Windows (by inserting 'python3 -V' command into the console and being given no errors)
Due to the inability to go through these stages, I have found myself being returned "Error 1" after attempting at doing the ever-so-desired 'Hello World' program. I am using Komodo Edit for this task though I believe the returning error is tied with having missed the aforementioned procedures rather than executing the program wrongly. Additionally, whenever I attempt at running the code for the Hello World program (namely, "print('Hello World')"), I get an error report saying that there is no command output/input of that nature...thus, I have somewhat concluded that the problem is either consistently within Python's compatability with the software (Windows 8) or undesirably related to my dumbness.
I am not sure this has been posted in the right section. Feel free to move it to a more befitting section of the forum if you feel this has no-place in the Beginners section.
Thanks in advance,
