Answer this question or Comment on this question for clarity


tried the following and get DLL load failed errors

Extract the .exe installer (I use UniExtract http://legroom.net/software/uniextract)
It will create 2 directories PLATLIB and SCRIPTS copy the contents of both directores in to c:\python26\lib\site-packages
Then cd to c:\python26\lib\site-packages and run “python pywin32_postinstall.py -install”
Remove pywin32_postinstall.py
That will install PyWin32 silently.

after a quick search I found this link that provides instructions of creating a MSI installer from the sources (it's a python script).
It also mentions that you must have python installed *before* the extensions are installed.
