Thanks that helps. I've tried the first option. Not doing much Python stuff at the moment, but I'll follow up if I experience any issues with this approach.

I'm very excited that both the language and tools support is forging ahead - thanks all.

The PTVS release is really an extended version of the tools in IronPython 2.7.  It adds support for CPython including debugging, profiling, etc...  while still supporting IronPython as well.  We'll likely either replace the tools distributed w/ IronPython with this version (maybe minus things like HPC support) or we'll pull the IpyTools out of the distribution and encourage people to go for the separate download.  No changes will likely happen until IronPython 3.x though as 2.7 is now out the door and it'd be a pretty significant change.

For the time being you'll need to choose one or the other - you can always choose to not by either not installing the IpyTools w/ the IronPython install and install the PTVS or you can just stick w/ the existing IronPython tools.
