    Well, if you have a Windows network, you need scripted installs :p
    Otherwise administering a Windows network is too much of a PITA in my
    opinion.

    Sure. Get an installed Python, copy the c:\python23 directory to a
    network share, then grab the file %SYSTEMROOT%\system32\python23.dll and
    copy it alongside python.exe. Now all your clients can access Python via
    the share name.

    Python itself doesn't need any registry entries. If you use the COM
    stuff of the win32 extensions, though, this might be different.

    Cheers Gerhard,
    Worked like a dream. I now have a shared python shell

    Can you check whether "import pythoncom" and "import pywintypes"
    and (if you've installed the Win32 extensions) "import win32api"
    all work?

    If these work without your having to do anything to the registry,
    I'm curious about the installation process you used, since we
    had to do additional steps to get the same result.

    Thanks.

    -Peter

    I'll have a go tomorrow but initially I only require the shell and don't
    need COM or WIN32.
