Hi I am using Python 2.6.5 on Windows.
I wanted to start using the win32com extensions which I understand are
"essentially part of the stdlib" ( quoted in
Since I didnt have the extensions as standard I went to sourceforge
to get the module.
However when I tried to do a distutils install of the python
extensions for windows downloaded from sourceforge , I found out I
need some proprietary components from Microsoft visual studio
My question is : Can I use the win32com extensions on a licensed
windows setup without having access to Visual Studio components.
I did see some places where they suggested compiling with mingw32 ,
but the compilation didnt work.
Any help in getting the module running would be greatly appreciated
