Importerror no module named WIN32API

P: n/a
hi all, again....

having another problem with python COMs, I run a python script on a
win2000 machine, that uses win32com.client and it runs perfectly,
whereas when I come to run it on a win98 machine (the machine that the
code, when completed, will be running from in the future) it returns
the error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "firsttry.py", line 1, in ?
import helloworld
File "G:\msmith\python\helloworld.py", line 2, in ?
import win32com
File "C:\PYTHON23\lib\site-packages\win32com\__init__.py", line 5,
in ?
import win32api, sys
ImportError: No module named win32api

Any clues as to how to rectify this problem would be greatly
appreciated

cheers,
matt.

Maybe you need to install the win32all extensions on the Win98 machine?

have you checked the "Installation Problems" page (available via the funny
link)?

http://starship.python.net/crew/mham...nProblems.html

have you checked that win32api is installed, and that python is picking up
the right win32api version? have you checked the python path? have you
traced the imports (use "python -v" or "python -vv" to run the program)?
if win32api exists, what happens if you import it from the python prompt?
are all DLLs that win32api depends upon available on your machine (google
for DLL dependency checkers, or use "dumpbin /imports" to check what it
relies on). etc.

Thanks for the ehlp, it was the pythonpath or rather the lack of one
that was causing me difficulties,
