[IronPython] "no module named win32api" using PyWin32-208

I posted this on the
*comp.lang.python<http://groups.google.co.za/group/comp.lang.python>
* list yesterday but am not sure if that is the correct list to have posted
on, so apologies for the cross-post but I would really appreciate some help
on this.

I have Python 2.4 installed on my local machine in c:\Python24. I have
also downloaded the python for windows extensions installer
pywin32-208.win32-py2.4.exe and installed this to
C:\Python24\Lib\site-packages

Trying to run a python script through a C# console app is causing me
problems: the last line of code in the following block results in a no
module named win32ap error. I'm not sure if this is because there is no
win32api.py in the win32 folder off site-packages, just a win32api.pyc
file.

            m_engine = new PythonEngine();

            m_engine.AddToPath("C:\\Python24\\DLLs");
            m_engine.AddToPath("C:\\Python24\\lib");
            m_engine.AddToPath("C:\\Python24\\lib\\plat-win");
            m_engine.AddToPath("C:\\Python24\\lib\\lib-tk");

m_engine.AddToPath("C:\\Python24\\Lib\\site-packages\\pythonwin");
            m_engine.AddToPath("C:\\Python24");
            m_engine.AddToPath("C:\\Python24\\lib\\site-packages");

m_engine.AddToPath("C:\\Python24\\lib\\site-packages\\win32");

m_engine.AddToPath("C:\\Python24\\lib\\site-packages\\win32\\lib");

            m_engine.Execute("from win32api import win32api");

I have added all the addtopaths to get the path to match the sys.path I
see in a normal python console which can successfully import the
module.

Incidentally, I have tried making the last line
             m_engine.Execute("import win32api");
with no luck.

Can the win32 extensions handle compiled python modules? If not how can
I get it to work?
Thanks,
Mike
