Hi,
  I downloaded the Python2.3b1 software and the win32all package.  I
am observing that when I try to access the Windows Management
Instrumentation (WMI) classes I get a traceback.  This operation works
fine using Python 2.2.

The code generating the traceback is as follows: :: 
  
c:\nt>c:\Python23\python.exe
Python 2.3b1 (#40, Apr 25 2003, 19:06:24) [MSC v.1200 32 bit (Intel)]
on win32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import win32com.client
>>> c = win32com.client.GetObject('winmgmts:root/cimv2')
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
  File "C:\Python23\lib\site-packages\win32com\client\__init__.py",
line 73, in
GetObject
    return Moniker(Pathname, clsctx)
  File "C:\Python23\lib\site-packages\win32com\client\__init__.py",
line 88, in
Moniker
    moniker, i, bindCtx = pythoncom.MkParseDisplayName(Pathname)
pywintypes.com_error: (-2147221020, 'Invalid syntax', None, None)


Thanks, 
  Murtaza.
