thanks, but I am not allowed to install FePy on the Production-Server. So I

&gt; How can i use the copy-module-functionality in ipy?<br>
<br>
<br>
Have you tried just using the py files that ship with CPython?<br>
<br>
You can get a distribution of IronPython that incorporates these files<br>
from Seo's FePy project at <a href="http://fepy.sourceforge.net">http://fepy.sourceforge.net</a><br>
