Dear Pythoners,

I am attempting to get the DDE module to import into Python and am
having some trouble.  I have downloaded and installed the pywin32
extensions for Python 2.6, which is the version of python I am running
on Windows.  When I attempt to import the DDE module, as follows,

import win32ui
import dde

I get:

" Traceback (most recent call last):
 File "<string>", in line 1, in <fragment>
ImportError: This must be an MFC application - try loading with
win32ui first"

Any insight and help is most welcome.
