I have win python 2.1 binary release
tried to build your product.
Had message about missing file:
PythonServiceMessages.mc
I found it at http://www.pythonpros.com/cgi-
bin/cvsweb.cgi/PyWin32/win32/src/
but after I added it I still have error:
source/PythonService.cpp(19) : fatal error C1083: Cannot
open include file: 'PythonServiceMessages.h': No such file
or directory

It's probably because I didn't compile python from sources.
I even don't have win32/src/ directory within my py
installation.

Could you include both missing files
(PythonServiceMessages.mc,PythonServiceMessages.h)
to your source

Thank you.

    These files are not the only one that are missing, you also
    need PyWinTypes.lib, the import library for
    PyWinTypesXX.dll, part of Mark Hammonds win32all
    extensions.
    The only possibility to create this library is to checkout the
    win32all sources from CVS, and build PyWinTypesXX.dll from
    source.

    Then you have to set the PYWIN32DIR variable in py2exe's
    setup script, maybe also PyWin32_BuildDir, and now you
    can build py2exe from source.

    I agree that this should be in a README file somewhere...

    Is www.pythonpros.com still alive?
