Relative imports - ModuleNotFoundError: No module named x

This is the first time I've really sat down and tried python 3, and seem to be failing miserably. I have the following two files:

  1. test.py
  2. config.py

config.py has a few functions defined in it as well as a few variables. I've stripped it down to the following:

enter image description here

However, I'm getting the following error:

    ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'config'

I'm aware that the py3 convention is to use absolute imports:

    from . import config

However, this leads to the following error:

    ImportError: cannot import name 'config'

So I'm at a loss as to what to do here... Any help is greatly appreciated. :)

As was stated in the comments to the original post, this seemed to be an issue with the python interpreter I was using for whatever reason, and not something wrong with the python scripts. I switched over from the WinPython bundle to the official python 3.6 from python.org and it worked just fine. thanks for the help everyone :)
