Get msg Python 0.0 is not supported by wing's debugger

  • retag add tags

Howdy all. New to Wing using Wing Personal and trying out various Python IDEs. Come from .Net, Access VBA and older desktop DBMS vas well as learning Python. Get "Python 0.0 is not supported by wing's debugger" msg when I attempt to run a local file w/i virtual environ. File runs but breakpoint is/are not stopped at. Appreciate any help as to issue.

Thanks, Rey

What version of Wing is this? I think this might have been a problem in early Wing 9 releases that has since been fixed. Could you please try Check for Updates in the Help menu and let us know if it's still a problem?

Hello I get the same msg. I am on Wing I am in version (rev 9426189d79ba). What is strange is that I get this message in one of my projects but not on another one. Both projects have differents virtual env but tomy knowledge they were created with the same method.

What is the Python version in each case? It might be that one is Python 3.11, which isn't supported by Wing 8 and only Wing 9. Please let me know if that's it so we can add an answer here for others than might run into this. Thanks!

Sorry for the late reply. Both projects have a virtualenv with python 3.10. Nither project have a virtualenv with python3.11. However I found out that there was a typo in the name of the virtualenv

Yes this message can indicate that the python executable cannot be run. In later Wing versions, the Python 0.0 is not supported warning is suppressed, but the script still can't be run.
