Go to Windows Explorer and then Tools | Folder Options | View and then uncheck Hide Extensions for known filetypes and finally click apply to all folders. I am not sure if this options applies to the command prompt or not.
I did this the files are py files. Command Prompt still won't open mobidedrm2.py

Nothing seems to work.

I'm not sure what you mean by this. Nothing will "open". You run the command and you will get a response right in the command line... for example... at your cmd prompt which should look something like this:

c:\YourFolderName>

Type

mobideddrm2.py

and press return

You will get a response. Paste that response here.

Ok Let me tell you from scratch

I put mobidedrm2.py in my Python26- (scripts) folder, i also put it into
(My Ebooks) folder

I click start- command prompt typed C:\Users\Denise\Documents\My eBooks>mobidedrm2.py
i hit enter and this line showed up
C:\Users\Denise\Documents\My ebooks>
everytime i type mobidedrm2.py it goes straight back to the line ending with My ebooks>

That is expected... after the command runs it will always bring you back to the command prompt.

But there is absolutely no text displayed between where you typed the command and the next command prompt? (Or a print screen of it?)

Can you past the contents of your command windows here?

Ok, that's just weird.

At that prompt try this command:

python mobidedrm2.py


and paste in the results.

Ok... there you go. Now it's working. For some reason the .py extension doesn't seemed to be registered on your PC.

So, now run this:

python26 mobidedrm2.py MyBook.prc Mybook_clean.prc PID

Replacing names accordingly. If your book name has spaces in it make sure to put them in quotes, like this:

python26 mobidedrm2.py "My Book.prc" "My book_clean.prc" PID

Ok... I can tell you how to associate .py to python to if you want... so you won't have to put python26 at the beginning of the line.

OK....

In Windows Explorer navigate to your eBook folder where you have the .py script. Double click on it.

You will get a dialog that says something like "Windows Can't Open This File". What do you want to do.

Choose "Select program from list" and click ok.

See if python is on the list... but it probably won't be. But if it is you can select it and click ok.

But it probably isn't. So, click the browse... button. Navigate to your python26 folder and select python.exe (the exe may be hidden on your machine.) Click open. CLick "Python File" in the description. Then make sure that the "Always use the select program to open this king of file" check box is checked. And press ok.

That should associate .py files with python. The file should now show as type "Python File" in explorer now.

I don't know why this didn't happen when you installed python... but it should of. You did download the windows installer and run it, right?

I'm stumped. Sounds like there is an association. Try to repair you python install in the Add/Remove programs control panel. If that doesn't work I'm fresh out of ideas.
