OK, I tried re-naming the file to myprogram.pyw and setting the target on
the shortcut to read:

    C:\Wayde\myprogram.pyw argument1

When I click on the resulting icon the little hourglass runs for a while,
but that's it.  None of the lines that should be printed out ever appear.

For fun I clicked on the file myprogram.pyw and that also generates the
hourglass.  At least that gives me a message in the description
information on the left side of the mycomputer windows that says "No
Console available".

Also I tried changing the shortcut target to read:

   C:\Wayde\myprogram.pyw argument1 > C:\Wayde\result.txt

and still nothing.  The hour glass pops up for a second, but no result.txt
file gets created.
