This error may mean that your Python installation is damaged, and/or
that Windows is brain damaged.

Google for "PYTHONCASEOK" and you'll find a solution to your problem.

As far as I know, the SocketServer module ought to work on Windows,
the problem is due to the case of the filename ( vs and the fact that the VFAT/FAT32 filesystem is
case-preserving but case-sensitive.  If you perform the suggested
web search, you can read more about it than you care to see.
