A fully working IDE with ABAQUS Python

I have been painfully struggling with finding a good Python IDE, which can use ABAQUS Python (since it is installed, why bother install another version of Python?!!)

I ever used Spyder but it seems packed with PythonXY. So install another Python. And strangely it can not start with a flash. Do not have time to find the problem. Give up.

I intended to use Wing IDE again. The old version I ever used seems can not link properly to my new version of ABAQUS 2016. Sadly the new version of Wing IDE needs $. give up

Thinking about to try other things like anacoda pycharm but all seems take time to learn. andy they may all have problem linking with ABAQUS python. Give up

Finally noticed that Python Tools for Visual Studio. I have VS2012 installed on my computer. So I downloaded the compatible version
Start VS, need Python environment:

Tools–>Options–>Python Tools–>Environmnet Options:
Give a name, i used Abaqus Python
Path :C:\SIMULIA\CAE\2016\win_b64\tools\SMApy\python2.7\python.exe
Windows Path: C:\SIMULIA\CAE\2016\win_b64\tools\SMApy\python2.7\pythonw.exe
Library Path: C:\SIMULIA\CAE\2016\win_b64\tools\SMApy\python2.7\Lib
Architecture: x64
Language version: 2.7
Path Environment variable: blank

It is workinging! Enjoying python debugging using Visual Studio interface!!
