Error running Python IDLE

Posted 18 April 2013 - 09:41 AM

Hi everyone,

I am new to the group and wondering if anyone can help me with this issue.
When I try to run IDLE for both python 3.3 and 2.7 I am getting the following error:

Unable to update Recent Files list:
[Errno 13] Permission denied:
'C:\\Users\\Steve\\.idlerc\\recent-files.lst'


Does anyone have a solution please?

I have uninstalled and reinstalled.

Thanks!

A few links to look at:

Sadly you don't tell us what OS you are running on but I guess by the look of the screen shot that you are on Windows.
