Sorry, that was a typo. I had meant C:\Python26\pythonw.exe (the 2 key is close to the w). The difference between python.exe and pythonw.exe is that python.exe gives you a command prompt window. This is good for CLI programs that don't show a GUI window but can be annoying if that command prompt window doesn't give you useful information. Then pythonw is nicer. Usually it is python.exe for .py files and pythonw.exe for .pyw files.
I have corrected my original posts just in case someone else tries to follow the recipe.
