py2exe service doesn't work, can't connect to service controller ?

I edited the svc_run.exe file and changed PyWinTypes22.dll to
PyWinTypes23.dll. py2exe now builds a distribution that does not use any 2.2
Python components.

However the service still fails to load after installation with the
following error:

The description for Event ID ( 240 ) in Source ( MyService ) cannot be
found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or
message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. The following
information is part of the event: 1063, The service process could not
connect to the service controller..

Has anyone been able to get py2exe services to work with 2.3?
