OK, I'll give that a try.

Yes, I had tried making the shortcut and in the targe line putting
something like:

   C:\python21\python myprogram.py argument1 argument2

When I tried clicking on the resulting shortcut I see a black window flash
by and then it is gone.

So, if I understand you correctly I should rename my program to
myprogam.pyw and then set the shortcut to say:

   c:\wayde\myprogram.pyw argument1 argument2

I'll give that a try.
