Need help! win32 com_error 'Exception occurred'

P: n/a
I've got a fatal bug using Parente's pyTTS with Python 2.3 on Windoze 32
using MS SAPI 5.1 and Hammond's win32 module. The test program is
import pyTTS
tts = pyTTS.Create()
tts.Speak('Hello world.')

The resulting debug trace is:

PythonWin 2.3.5 (#62, Feb 8 2005, 16:23:02) [MSC v.1200 32 bit (Intel)]
on win32.

The system does not have a sound card --- could that be an issue?

My head is about to explode trying to solve this problem, so your help and
suggestions will be much appreciated.

Of course. -2147201015 is 0x80045009, which is SPERR_NO_DRIVER.

Seriously, what on earth did you expect this to do? Its whole purpose is
send sounds to the sound driver. If there is no sound driver, what was it
supposed to do with the audio data?
