IDLE does not open properly in my ArcGIS Desktop 10.6 (Win 10 64 bit). I set the Geoprocessing Editor with following
When I right-click a script tool in ArcCatalog and then select Edit, 3 instances of IDLE open and none of them have opened the file.
I think it is a path problem. The path is on a Windows network drive:
K:\Me K\Program Resources\ArcGIS\Arcgis10.1
and the 3 instances are
K:\Me K\Program Resources\ArcGIS\Arcgis10.1\K
My guess is the
idle.pyw script split the path at spaces, got 3 members and ran an accumulation of each in succession, creating 3 IDLE windows of different parts of the path. But why would it even do that?
Even then, there is the strange wrap around with the
Either way, it does not work as required. Does anyone have any ideas?
Update: I followed advice to uninstall 10.6 and python and then reinstall. It still opens 3 IDLE windows, but now the file paths have a new component:
Trying with Notepad++ as Editor and the same errors persist:
"K:\Me" does not exist
"C:\windows\System32\K\Program" does not exist
"C:\windows\System32\Resources\ArcGIS\Arcgis10.1\file.py" cannot be opened
It is not Python but ArcGIS 10.6.1 sending the erroneous path strings.
This is normal script making in ArcCatalog I have done for years in 9.x and earlier 10.x.
