Tutorial :win32api.dll Will Not Install



Question:

I am trying to start a Buildbot Buildslave on a Windows XP virtual machine:

python buildbot start .    ImportError: No module named win32api.  

Google tells me that win32api is win32api.dll. I downloaded the file from www.dll-files.com and followed the guide found on that site (http://www.dll-files.com/unzip.php). When I try to run regvr32 win32api.dll, it tells me that the specified module could not be found.

tl;dr - Where do I put win32api.dll so Windows will install it? Am I trying to use the wrong file? (using python version 2.6)


Solution:1

win32api belongs Python for Windows extensions, Aka Pywn32.
have u installed it?


Solution:2

Install ActivePython (http://www.activestate.com/activepython/) - it's a Python distro that comes bundled with the Windows dlls. It's what everyone else does.
