I have both ArcGIS 10.1 and QGIS 1.8 installed and both include Python 2.7 in slightly different setups and in different folders (c:\Python27\ArcGIS10.1\ and c:\Program Files (x86)\Quantum GIS Lisboa\apps\Python27).
It is only ArcGIS which include python.exe, while it is really QGIS I would like to start experimenting with for some scripting, but preferably just running my scripts from the command console.
Are there any recommendations on how to do this smartest? I'm thinking of settings environment variables etc.
I am new on both QGIS and python.
