Before I submit a bug report (Pythonwin)

P: n/a
I uninstalled my 2.2.2 version of Python and related packages from my
XP Professional station and proceeded to upgrade to the latest and
greatest: Python2.3, win32all-155.exe, etc.

When I try to start the Pythonwin editor, either through its shortcut
or through right clicking on an existing module, a window pops up with
the message:
<Error getting traceback - cant import
traceback>exceptions.ImportError: No module named
pywin.framework.startup

After, closing the window nothing happens.

I was able to start the editor by double clicking on:
Python23\Lib\site-packages\Pythonwin\start_pythonwin.pyw

So, I assume the problem has to do with the installation process.

This is the first time I have ever had a problem with Pythonwin (the
editor), so I'm a little surprised. Am I the only one having this
problem?

Oops, I realised this morning that my initial post has an error (that
is what I get from writing from memory). I didn't upgrade from Python
2.2.2, but from Python2.3c1. And another significant detail is that I
chose a completely different location on the disk for the 2.3 final
installation. I wonder if Pythonwin is looking in the old Python2.3
location for something.

I added Python2.3 to the path environment variable, and got the same
results. I then went trough the registry searching for the old
Python2.3 folder. I found an occurrance inthe following key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Explorer\ComDlg32\OpenSaveMRU\exe

I changed it to the new Python2.3 location, but Pythonwin still won't
start. Any ideas?
