Hi All,

I am trying to install pywin32-217 for the first time on my Windows 7 64
bit machine. I have following installed on my machine,

Python 2.7.3
MS Windows SDK for Windows 7 (7.1)
Downloaded pywin32-217 from sourceforge

When I run the setup.py as below
c:\pywin32-217\python setup.py install

I am getting following error

Building pywin32
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "setup.py", line 2428, in <module>
    ] +
  File "setup.py", line 2224, in convert_data_files
    raise RuntimeError("No files match '%s'" % file)
RuntimeError: No files match 'pythonwin\pywin\*.cfg'

There are two .cfg files (default.cfg and IDLE.cfg) under pythonwin\pywin\.

Please help how to get rid of this error and continue with installation.
