    How did you install it? The pywin32_postinstall.py script is supposed to be run by the installer, which copies these DLLs to either your SYSTEM32 directory, or the directory with python.exe in it.

    It looks like you are using an egg provided by someone else - you should discuss your problem with them, as pywin32 does not (yet) support eggs.
