Ok. I uninstalled everything related to Python including my ctypes and
wxPython installations. I reinstalled Python 2.4.3 and setuptools
0.6c7. It still gives me the TypeError as before.
Also, now it won't recognize "python" as a command name. While I can
start python's command line terminal by going to Start, Run, and
typing "python", if I open a command window and type the following:
python setup.py bdist_wininst
'python' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
Unless I actually type out the path to the python executable. Maybe
there's something wrong with the PyCrypto module itself. I don't know.
I guess I'll post this to the c.l.py group too.
Sorry to bother you. Thanks for your help.
