You control which Python is used with your debug process from the Project Properties dialog in the Project menu. Wing looks for the latest Python by default so you will need to specify the older interpreter here. Wing should find the newer interpreter but it may not if it's hidden somewhere off your path in a non-obvious place. So in general if you have more than one Python installed, it's good practice to tell Wing explicitely which one you want to use. That is the only change needed. The rest follows this choice, and there isn't any danger in mixing libraries between the two installs unless you do so on purpose in your own code. - Stephan
