Hi,

I teach Python at 3rd level and we're switching to WingIDE (101) this year.
I like the software and I am grateful to WingWare for making the Wing101
version available for use in education.

For most class groups, we're using WingIDE 101 version 4 with Python 3.2 on
Linux, and it works perfectly. However, with one class group, we're
using WingIDE 101 3.2 on Windows Vista. It works fine with Python 2.6.5, but
I get the following error when I try configure it to use Python 3.2:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\Program Files\Wing IDE 101 3.2\bin\wingdb.py", line 542, in main
    netserver = FindNetServerModule(winghome, user_settings)
  File "C:\Program Files\Wing IDE 101 3.2\bin\wingdb.py", line 362, in
FindNetServerModule
    raise ImportError('Could not import netserver')
ImportError: Could not import netserver
wingdb.py: Error: Failed to start the debug server
wingdb.py: Error: You may be running an unsupported version of Python
wingdb.py: Python version = 3.2 (r32:88445, Feb 20 2011, 21:29:02) [MSC
v.1500 32 bit (Intel)]
wingdb.py: WINGHOME='C:\\Program Files\Wing IDE 101 3.2'
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\Program Files\Wing IDE 101 3.2\bin\wingdb.py", line 542, in main
    netserver = FindNetServerModule(winghome, user_settings)
  File "C:\Program Files\Wing IDE 101 3.2\bin\wingdb.py", line 362, in
FindNetServerModule
    raise ImportError('Could not import netserver')
ImportError: Could not import netserver

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\Program Files\Wing IDE 101 3.2\bin\wingdb.py", line 553, in main
    sys.exit(-1)
SystemExit: -1

I've searched the archives and come across similar problems relating to
"unsupported versions". However, the changelog says that version 3.2.13 "Added
support for Python 3.2". Is there a compatibility problem with Wing101
version 3.2 and Python 3.2?

Could anyone please shed some light on this problem?

Upgrading WingIDE 101 to version 4 is unfortunately not an option in the
computer labs at this stage. The fallback plan is to stay with Python 2.

Thanks in advance,
Cormac.
