Are you sure you can run the .exe in the IDE and not just the python code that created the exe?

Hate to say it, but other than invoking exe form command line using the system() or popen() functions you can't; IDLE just doesn't offer you that feature as far as I'm aware .

Yes, since the IDLE GUI doesn't offer a way of starting exes the only way to invoke one is though the Python shell which IDLE wraps itself around. If you want to run the exe then just launch the command line/shell/terminal and type the path to the exe. Or, double click the exe if your using a windows machine.
