Is the 'y' really there or is it actually the following?

Wing needs to use the Python that comes with it for its own execution.
Your debug process can run against any Python version 2.0->2.6.

My guess is you have a 64 bit machine and don't have the ia32-libs
compatibility package installed.  The Python Wing is trying to use
is a 32 bit app.

Please let us know if that doesn't help.
