I have installed (& run) boa on W2K and XP. On my home machine never any
probs, but at work on W2K and XP I found I had to edit 3 files / classes.
I hope this may help you
 I've just installed python 2.2, wxpython 2.4, and Boa Constructor 0.2.0, on
win 2000 sp3.
      When I click on the boa.py file, I get the Boa splash, and an 'Error
on startup" dialog with the details; '"global name 'string' is not defined".
      Any thoughts?

      I have it running.
      I had to add 'string' to the Import statement at the beginning of
these files:
      About.py, StyledTextCtrls.py, and PropertyEditors.py
