This might be the same bug I experienced with the 200 version of the 
extensions, where the PythonPath was not set correctly by the installer 
or at least differently from previous versions. My symptom back then was 
that WinCvs macros could no longer access the extension modules. I had 
to adjust the PythonPath manually and then forgot all about it again. 
Maybe it's not yet been fixed in 201. I'll check Sourceforge...

Here's what you would have to do if this is indeed the same issue:

The easiest way to edit the PythonPath is by starting up PythonWin (the 
IDE installed by the extension) then from the menu choose Tools|Edit 
PythonPath. Now, I'm not entirely sure if all of the following was 
actually necessary but that's how my settings look at the moment and it 
seems to work:

 From the treeview select the entry labeled "PythonPath". Make sure the 
value seen on the right contains the following paths:


(substitute [PathToPython] with your actual path, mine would be 

Then right-click the PythonPath folder and choose "Add Key". Name the 
new key "win32". The default value for this new key will be the first 
two entries from above list (i.e. win32 and win32\lib), semicolon-separated.

Next, create yet another sub-key below PythonPath, name it "win32com" 
and assign the default value as the third item above (i.e. the win32com 

Hope this helps.
