Were you trying to install from a cd? This may not apply in your case,
but I saw the same error message yesterday - I was trying to install
pywin32 from a copy of the installer I had burned to a cd, without
copying the installer to the hard drive first.
When I copied the installer file to the hard drive and reran the
installation, I didn't get the error messages.
Looks like the installer needs write access to the location from which
the installer is launched.
