I don't know, you tell me :-) Startproject works fine here in Python 3, it does generate a So at the very least we'll need full reproduction instructions (preferably a pasted shell session showing exactly what you did). Reopen when you provide additional details.

Thanks for the extra info, and the report.

How did you install Django?

Can you open up a Python shell and type import django; django.__file__ to see where Django is installed? And then go to that location, and go into the django\conf\project_template subdirectory - do you see a file there?

Do you see this problem only with Python 3, or also with Python 2 (if you have the ability to test with both)?

I've checked both 33 & 27 directories, and found the '' file.

But I found and deleted a django directory without the '' in my 'C://Python27/Lib' directory
that was causing the problem.

It works fine now.

My bad, so sorry for the inconvenience and false alarm.
