To get started, you need to:

(1) Install Python and Wing IDE

If you don't already have them on your system, install Python and Wing IDE. For detailed instructions, see Installing Wing IDE.

(2) Start Wing IDE

Wing can be started from a menu, desktop, or tray icon or using the command line executable. For detailed instructions, see Running the IDE.

If you don't have a license, you can obtain a 30-day trial the first time you start Wing.

Once Wing is running, you should switch to using the Tutorial listed in Wing's Help menu because it contains links directly into the IDE's functionality (this includes step (3) below).

(3) Copy the Tutorial Directory

Next, copy the entire tutorial directory out of your Wing IDE installation to a location where you will have write access to the files in it.

The easiest way to do this is to launch Wing, bring up the Tutorial from the Help menu, and press the Copy Tutorial Now link that appears on this page when it is viewed inside Wing IDE.

We welcome feedback, which can be submitted with Submit Feedback in Wing's Help menu or by emailing support at wingware.com
