Hi, I thought that I downloaded the Hello World Book package, but I didn't have Pythoncard or the Resource Editor on my computer. I downloaded them separately, but they are not working right. The Resource Editor comes up as a tiny gray window that says "Resource Editor" on the top but has nothing on it. Then I get an error on IDLE (2.5) saying:

no resource file for /Users/grace/Documents/PythonCard-0-1.8.2/tools/oneEditor/propertyEditor
Traceback (most recent call last):

f = open(filename)
TypeError: coercing to Unicode: need string or buffer, NoneType found

I'm not sure what I did wrong? I have a Mac computer by the way. Please help!

I started using a different computer (Windows) for now instead which isn't very convenient for me, but nevermind I guess. I would still very much appreciate some sort of help, but yeah.

Re: Pythoncard & Resource Editor
The same thing happened to me!!!! I have no idea what's going on! Hmmm... i have Snow Leopard... what about you? PythonCard might not be compatible with Snow Leopard.

Re: Pythoncard & Resource Editor
I have Version 10.5.8, Leopard, so I think that it's just Apple computers in general.

Re: Pythoncard & Resource Editor

I made an video on how to install pythoncard on Mac OS 10.6(snow leopard)

also I would like to point out that the resource editor doesn't work properly on a Mac os X 10.6 or 10.5 (maybe it works on 10.5).

P.S.I sent an email to pythoncard asking if it was dead a few months ago no reply and no one has worked on it for 5 years(the last update was in 2006) so I think its dead.
