[SOLVED] Interactive window disconnected

Python interactive window.  Type $help for a list of commands.
Failed to start interactive process:
System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception (0x80004005): The system cannot find the file specified
at System.Diagnostics.Process.StartWithCreateProcess(ProcessStartInfo startInfo)
at System.Diagnostics.Process.Start()
at Microsoft.PythonTools.Repl.PythonReplEvaluator.Connect()



I get the above output in the Interactive Window when I start it with View->Other Windows->Python 2.7 Interactive. Also, same error if I start it any other way as well. Anyone know what's going on?

I'm using:

  • Visual Studio 2010 Professional
  • Windows 8 Consumer Preview (64-bit)
  • Enthought Python Distribution 7.3-1 (64-bit)

Updated with screen of Interactive Window.

Fixed; I originally had Python 2.7 installed on C:\ and then uninstalled that and installed EPD on V:\. Turns out the default interpreter path for the interpreter was still set to C:\ so I added a "new" interpreter with the correct path and now the interactive window works fine.
