Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0IDLE Subprocess Error" at the top and then "Socket Error: Conection refused". Right after that a second box popped up which the title said "Subprocess Startup Error" it said underneath "IDLE's subprocess didn't make connection. Either IDLE can't start a subprocess or a personal firewall software is blocking the connection.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm not sure what exactly the problem is, but if you don't have a good antivirus and are on a windows, you computer may be flagging IDLE as a security risk. If you have a mac or Norton antivirus that is probably not the problem though. Best let someone more techsavvy than me answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what course are you doing? i think both OCW and EDX use the 2.7.3 so you could try to install that instead or just try to reinstall the one you have

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The problem you are mentioning is not due to your version of Python. It is due to the loopback interface 127.0.0.1 not being unavailable. It might be blocked by your firewall or your network interfaces might be misconfigured. What OS are you using?
