pywin32 / README.txt

Full commit
This is the readme for the Python for Win32 (pywin32) extensions source code.

See CHANGES.txt for recent changes.

'setup.py' is a standard distutils build script.  You probably want to:

% setup.py install
or
% setup.py --help

As for Python itself, these extensions require MSVC7 for Python 2.4 and
later, otherwise MSVC6.  Some extensions require a recent "Platform SDK" 
from Microsoft, and in general, the latest service packs should be 
installed, but run 'setup.py' without any arguments to see 
specific information about dependencies.  A vanilla MSVC installation should 
be able to build most extensions and list any extensions that could not be 
built due to missing libraries - if the build actually fails with your 
configuration, please log a bug via http://sourceforge.net/projects/pywin32.
