    Hi!

    Perso, on Vista, I :
    - deactive UAC
    - deactive firewall (I have a rooter)
    - run all like Administrator
    - install all in other DIR than "Program Files"

    Result : no problem.

    How do I deactivate UAC and Router?

    I did run as Administrator and installed both Python and Pythonwin into
    c:\Python25\

    This is the error I got ...

    Here is the log at the end of the install:

    Copied pythoncom25.dll to C:\Outils\Python\pythoncom25.dll
    Copied pywintypes25.dll to C:\Outils\Python\pywintypes25.dll

    The sample COM objects were not registered.

    Here are some steps I used to finally successfully install Python and
    Pythonwin on Vista Ultimate:

    1. Uninstalled Python (could not see a way to uninstall Pythonwin)
    2. Installed Python again (.MSI does not provide option to run as
    Administrator)
    3. Rebooted computer
    4. Installed Pythonwin with right click option "Run as Administrator" - This
    was different from the last time I installed this.

    Copied pythoncom25.dll to C:\Windows\system32\pythoncom25.dll
    Copied pywintypes25.dll to C:\Windows\system32\pywintypes25.dll
    Registered: Python.Interpreter
    Registered: Python.Dictionary
    Registered: Python
    -> Software\Python\PythonCore\2.5\Help[None]=None
    -> Software\Python\PythonCore\2.5\Help\Pythonwin
    Reference[None]='C:\\Python25\\Lib\\site-packages\\PyWin32.chm'
    Shortcut for Pythonwin created
    Shortcut to documentation created
    The pywin32 extensions were successfully installed.

    This time, no errors.

    5. Started up a Python script from a directory using right-click | Open With
    Pythonwin.exe and it works fine.
    Earlier it was giving an error about not being able to locate win32ui.pyd.

    I did not touch UAC or Router/Rooter/Firewall ... I did not know how to.

    Thanks.

    You need to post the error traceback along with some more information
    so the community can help.

    If you are asking if you can run COM objects created in Python on Windows Vista
    Ultimate, the answer is yes. I have several.
