I've tried to install python-2.4.1c2 and pywin32 -
(build 203 for 2.4). And when trying to use makepy on
MSXML-4 or MSXML-3 it just bailed out with syntax error
somewhere in the generated py-file. (Moreover, i've
tried com tests - many of them have failed).
Also I've tried latest CVS snapshot as of 10:00 (GMT+3)
19-Mar, have built it with MSVS 7.1 - no luck.
I cannot decide if this is related to the "long code"
bug, since (1) python do not crash, it just report
syntax error and (2) this "long code" appears to be
fixed at this moment. So I desided to add this issue as
a new bug.
Unfortunately I cannot check it with python 2.4 now,
I'll report on this later. (Since latest ActiveState
Python build works fine for me with python 2.4, and, as
I think with pywin January snapshot - there were some
pathches for overflows in the generation).
I'll attach generated gen-py file and the error
message, may be it'll help.
