For starters, try full absolute paths for both parts. On
my machine, for example, this is pretty much guaranteed
This was just the following script, which you might want
to try as a test, but it works only if the pywin32 stuff
(formerly known as win32all) is installed:
win32ui.MessageBox('it works!', 'Tick', 0)
If even that doesn't work (after correcting the paths
and module name for your own system), open a command prompt
(Start->Run then type "cmd" and hit enter) and type
exactly the same thing there. If *that* doesn't work,
you don't even have Python installed properly...
