I put the following in my .emacs file to make sure that the "run-python" variable maps to the right path:
(setq python-shell-interpreter "C:\\Users\\xxxx\\python.exe")
When I restart emacs and do M-x run-python; it I get the following error:
apply: Searching for program: no such file or directory, c\:/Users/xxxx/python.exe
I don't understand why emacs puts "c:/" instead of "c:\" and I assume that is why it cannot find the python's interpreter's path. Am I missing something?
UPDATE: The following works: C-u M-x run-python RET "python" -i
Make sure you don't put 'python'; and actually use quotation marks like ".
