Wouldn't it make more sense for you to use the exposed windows API using the
Python win32 module rather than calling an external program via os.popen? I
googled a little and found
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa376868(VS.85).aspx which should be
callable. I also found
http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-win32/2008-December/008474.htmlwhich
mentions that setting the appropriate privileges is a pain and
recommends using another module which is linked to.
