Python fails to open the program after update


One of the usual causes why an application cannot properly initialize is incompatibility. In your case, check if your Python supports your operating system since you are using Microsoft Windows 8. Also, since you are using a much newer version of Microsoft Windows, it is best that you install the latest version. Download and install Python 3.4.1 for Windows.

If you want to install Python on Mac, you need to be running Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard or higher for x86 and Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard or later for x64. See if this fixes the problem. If not, try opening it as administrator. Right-click Python then point to “Run as” and then select Administrator. When prompted, enter your administrator password to continue.

If this works and the program successfully open, set Python to always start as administrator. Right-click Python again then select Properties. Select Compatibility tab then check “Run this program as an administrator” under “Privilege level” section then click OK. After this, Python will always be started as administrator even if you don’t select “Run as”.
