The win32all installer has been crashing on me for
the last few win32all releases.
This has happened for Python 2.2.3 with win32all-156
and Python 2.3 with win32all-157. It has also
happened for some previous win32all releases
(such as 153 and 155 with Python 2.3).
The error occurs during the `Completing Installation'
stage, when the message box says
`Registering COM Server AXScript Engine'. The
error message is the usual `This program has performed
an illegal operation and will be shut down' message.
Pressing the `Details' button gives:
WIN32ALL-156 caused an invalid page fault in
module MSVCRT.DLL at 016f:7800b936.

(This is with Python 2.2.3 and win32all-156.)
This has happened on both WinXP and Win98SE.
Once this happens, the win32all uninstaller doesn't
work (says `can't find install.log').
If Python is installed with the `Non-Admin' option,
then win32all installs fine (presumably because it
never reaches the `Registering COM Server AXScript
I haven't seen anyone else report this, so looks like
I'm the only one. Any help is greatly appreciated.
