Yes, the IDE itself uses a private subset of Python 1.5.2. Your debug process, however, uses by default whichever Python is found first on your path, or failing that by looking in obvious locations like (on Linux) /usr/local/bin and /usr/bin. The debug process never uses the private copy of Python because it only contains the parts of Python that we actually use. On Windows, BTW, Python is located instead by looking in the registry and using the latest installed version by default for the debug process. > 2.

This is also used to determine what python libraries to use in source code analysis for the source browser, source index, goto-symbol feature, etc. Anything that's dependent on Python interpreter version. > 3.

How can I get it to display the 2.0 manual (without creating a > 2.0->1.5 link)? Sounds like Wing is finding your installed Python 1.5 on the path before 2.0 so is using that by default. You can confirm this from Show Analysis Stats in the Source menu. From there, use Change Settings and you can set the Python Executable either project-wide or for your main debug file (if you've defined one in your project). After you do this, Wing will reanalyse all your source, your debug process should run under the selected Python, and the correct manual pages should come up. - Stephan
