Hello John,
Apparently so.  Well, win32file is part of the PyWin32 package, which
are a set of modules that wrap many Windows API's.   I'm not sure why it
was't/isn't required for PySerial 2.5 or whether as you say perhaps this
module is included in PySerial2.5 and isn't in 2.4.

But whatever the case may be, suffice it to say I've reproduced your
issue on my Win7 64bit box, and then resolved it by installing the
PyWin32 modules.   It's probably a good idea to install this package
anyway -- if you're working on Windows the PyWin32 modules are very
useful - they basically wrap and makes available a shedload of Windows
specific API's to Python. (Many people working with Python on Windows
almost automatically would install this, it's also why i didn't run into
this issue in the first place as I already had PyWin32 installed prior
to testing my suggestion. Sorry.)

Anyway.  To download and install PyWin32, go here: http://ur.ly/vLwv

Presumably you want the AMD64 (64 bit) Py2.7 version.   Install it then
try your test again.

Fingers crossed. ;)


Hi, Walter -

I got pywin32-214.win32-py2.7.exe because I have the Intel i7 (I'm guessing that the AMD versions are for the AMD processor). However, all of the exe offerings have the same "Python not found in registry" problem that started this whole thing.

So, since the only source module available is pywin32-214.zip, I got it and installed it. It does not work, maybe because I'm using Python 2.7 and the zip is for 3.2.

I really appreciate all the time you have put into my problems, Walter. Thank you.
