    Hi:

    I recently installed Python 2.4 and the Win 32 extensions on
    Windows XP. I had some problems with the COM makepy utility for the
    Excel COM libraries. I reported this problem to the sourceforge bug
    tracker.

    My question is , is python 2.3 and the win32 extensions more stable
    than Python 2.4?

    Thank You

    There were some memory issues that caused makepy on Python 2.4 to crash
    for some large type libraries (including Excel). This problem has been
    fixed in build 204 of pywin32, released just today.

    Regards,
