32 bit on a 64 bit PC and Windows version should work, 64 bit on 32 bit 
Windows probably not. So, if you kept your second attempt, that should 
be enough to start with.

IDLE and the Python shell both start with windows showing text like this:

Python 3.7.0 (v3.7.0:1bf9cc5093, Jun 27 2018, 04:59:51) [MSC v.1914 64 
bit (AMD64)] on win32
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license()" for more information.

Did you get something like this? In that case nothing was wrong, Python 
just waited for your commands. The manual contains a tutorial which 
starts using the interactive interpreter - try it out. If you don't get 
the results the tutorial predicts, come back here or subscribe to the

If your "small windows" don't contain such a header, that really would 
look wrong. In that case: are they completely empty? Or what else? If 
they contain any text at all, can you copy and paste it into your 
answer? Please don't try to send a screenshot, the list won't accept it.
