I know that this had been asked before, But the simple examples have not worked.  I am including the pyt code in the message to help illustrate the issue.  If I use the line param6.value = True, the python toolbox will not load, but if I comment out that line it loads fine.  How should I be setting that boolean value on load to be checked.

import arcpy


class Toolbox(object):
def __init__(self):
"""Define the toolbox (the name of the toolbox is the name of the
.pyt file)."""
self.label = "Toolbox"
self.alias = ""

# List of tool classes associated with this toolbox
self.tools = [Tool]


class Tool(object):
def __init__(self):
"""Define the tool (tool name is the name of the class)."""
self.label = "Vector Prep"
self.description = "This tool is a first test of a python toolbox and tool"
self.canRunInBackground = False

#Define parameter definitions

Shane, perhaps you could re-paste the code using Code Formatting....

it is a bit hard to follow without the indentation
