Wing doesn't support Python 3.9 yet. We'll try to add this soon. We usually do earlier in the beta series, but this is running a bit behind schedule at the moment. Python 3.8 and earlier are supported, however.

I tried with Python v 3.8. 5 and 3.7.8 but the version of the python in WING still is v 2.7.10. It showed "2.7.10 (default, Jul 14 2015, 19:46:27) "

You may need to set the Python Executable in Project Properties from the Project menu to tell Wing which Python to use. I'm not sure why it's preferring Python 2; it should be trying to use the latest Python by default. It may be you need to restart Wing when you've installed a new Python version to get that to happen (in which case setting Python Executable may not be necessary) or if you're really using Wing Personal 7.0.x and not 7.2.3 then perhaps it's a bug we've fixed since then. I'd recommend using the latest Wing version.

Thank you for your help, I got it by setting in Project Properties.

Great, I'm glad that solved it. I see we changed some things in Wing 8, in how we scan for Python, and I think that may fix what you ran into so the latest Python is used.

My Mac is old, maybe it does not work with latest version. 7.0 is fine for me now. Thank you again.
