I want to check my version of python

Sep 26, 2013 at 6:26 PM
I want to check my version of python before I start digging into the language and learning. When I type import sys and sys.version and sys.version_info or any one of those commands individually into the Python Debug Interactive it tells me that

Code can only be executed while stopped in debugger.

Python Debug Interactive is, indeed, for running code in the context of a program being debugged - which is only possible when you're stopped at some point in that program (e.g. at a breakpoint).

However, PTVS also has regular Interactive windows - one per every registered interpreter - that just give you a normal REPL with its own context. You can find that in Tools -> Python Tools. Alternatively, you can open the Python Environments tool window (also in Tools -> Python Tools, or Ctrl+K followed by backtick), and then click on the "Interactive Window" link for the interpreter for which you need one.

Of course, by the time you've found any of those commands, you'll see in the name which version you're going to get :)

I suspect the Environments window will answer your question.
