Pywin (pywin32-204.win32-py2.4) cannot be installed,
asks for MSVCR71.dll. Guess this file is a dll from
Microsoft Visual C++. Its funny that this open source
program hosted on sourceforge requires quite expensive
microsoft program to be purchased before installation :-)
The installation program should at least point to e.g.
dll-files.com or better include the file...

    MSVCR71.dll is freely distributed runtime. Documentation of
    PyWin32 has reference to download location. Don't buzz!

    I'd like to install the binaries, but distutils doesn't seem
    to support it.
