Your python<version>.dll needs to live in your <windows>\system32
directory (or in the current directory if you are running
  stackless temporarily).

If things are set up properly, you will
be able to import stackless from PythonWin.

Be aware of Stackless not being very stable on PythonWin, cause
it creates a new interpreter state after every input.
It works to some extent, but I did not test this for a longer time.
Also, it is quite likely that the debugger gets confused by tasklet

It seems to work pretty stable with wxpython and Boa constructor.
wxpython has a few problems, too, but they are easy to work around.
Contact me privately or on the stackless list if you need support.
