Error including win32net in a Python COM server

Thank you for your help.

I actually learned how to create COM servers from your book.  So when
I couldn't get this one to work, I inserted the "SplitString" method
from your book because I know that I have once gotten that to work. 
So the code calling the object is the one you had in your book in VBA.
 I've attached it below for reference.  As I had said, it works great
as long as I remove the line importing win32net.

>From VBA in EXCEL:

Sub test()
Set PythonUtils = CreateObject("PythonDemos.MW_COM")
response = PythonUtils.SplitString("Hello from VB")
For Each Item In response
  MsgBox Item
End Sub

Thanks again,
