    Unhappy cannot import win32net


    I'm new to python but have done some scripts with vb and perl. I can't seem to import win32net, I can import win32api and win32com, however. On my win98se computer installed with python 2.3.2 from ActiveState, this is what happens:

    >>>import win32net
    ImportError: DLL load failed: A device attached to the system is not functioning.

    Is there anything I can do about this? I googled it but with no success.

    thanks.

    from win32net import *

    Still the same error.

    I read somewhere that win32net really does not work with win98. So now i'm using win32wnet instead. Certainly not as robust, but at least i can create a connection to a remote workstation, my primary intent.

    Thanks for the response. If you have some cool sys ad scripts you're willing to share i sure would appreciate 'em.

    Best regards.
