Hi All,

I have a problem using win32pdh with Python22.
The call of win32pdh.EnumObjectItems changes the
decimal point from . to , on my system.
I think it could be a problem with the language setting
form german.
So I run in trouble with unpickle of float objects.
Is there a soulution or workaround?

The problem occurs under german language setting
for windows.
For german EnumObjectItems neede 'Prozess' insted of 'Process'
to work.

import pickle

def pickle_and_unpickle(to_pickle):
    pickled = pickle.dumps(to_pickle)
    print "%s -> %s"%(to_pickle, pickled)
    return pickled

float_obj = 1.2345

str_float_obj_before = str(float_obj)


#the trouble begins:
#this commands changes the decimal point from . to , (german language 
#so the unpickle didn't work for pickle done before the calls
import win32pdh
Process="Prozess" #German   Process="Process"   #English
junk, processes = 

str_float_obj_after = str(float_obj)
print "the string representation of float changed from %s to 


#this is ok
print pickle.loads(pickled_after)

#error due to comma(,) insted of point (.)
print pickle.loads(pickled_before)
