I was afraid of that...

There's no binary egg for combination for python 2.6 on windows 
available on the package index:


So, really we should try to get you running on python 2.5 on windows.

Now, I'm by no means a windows expert (at all), but I would guess there 
must be a way to install pywin32 on your python 2.5 installation...

Can anyone with a bit more windows experience please help Squidward a 
bit further with this?? Squidward could please give installing pywin32 
another try on your python 2.5 installation?
