Wow -Thanks for replying!! Great timing :) I was checking things out again last night & this morning and have a new question. It turns out that I had the Integrated Shell already from the Beta 1 install. And the only thing different
after my uninstall of Beta 1 and then install of Beta 2 was that the date on the
C:/Program Files/Python/Python Tools For Visual Studio now says 4/12/2011
So when I invoke this, I can see the properties for Visual Studio and its Release #, etc. but how do I 'prove' to myself that I am running
Beta 2 underneath and not Beta 1 other than the new date I see under Program Files?
Also, I am an unemployed housewife basically - a Software QA Engineer :} - not a startup but through a combination of factors, I think I am technically
also a student. I may pursue the Bizspark.com route because that would mean I would be able to have a PyTools iconto launch from within Visual studio
like Basic, C++, etc. because it would be the full fledge version. Now I use the separate desktop shortcut for Integrated Shell -> PyTools. I really like the whole look and feel of the product though!
