When trying to do a plain import win32ui inside a python macro script, the whole office suite hangs and I have to kill it.
When using console everything works fine.

(I installed it the first time by drag-dropping the site-packages contents inside the oo-python
Second time totally removed system python and using a script pointed the oo-python registry to the win32 installer.
Installed succesfully.)

pywin32 build 214 to 217
python 2.6 and 2.6.1
openoffice 3.4.1, libreoffice 3.5 - 3.6
windows xp, 2003

    Sorry, but importing win32ui in other GUI environments (being IDLE, wxPython, Open Office or anything else) simply isn't supported - the issue will be that the MFC libs behind win32ui want full control of event loops and they always get in each others way...
