[IronPython] [python] *.pyd files usage in Iron python

Thanks Michael for your reply.

 I tried the approach mentioned in
http://www.voidspace.org.uk/ironpython/cpython_extensions.shtml and added a
new function in the cext.py to call the win32 extensions:

*def createFilexx():
    print "Before Importing Win32File"
    import win32file
    print " Importing Win32File - Success"
    x =  win32file.CreateFile("C:/john_text.txt",0,0,None,2,3,None)

    print " Creation of file - Success"
*
In the command prompt, I executed the following as follows:

>>> import sys
>>> sys.path.append("C:\Documents and Settings\john\Desktop\cext-
ironpy-0.1.4
\cext-ironpy-0.1.4")
>>> sys.path.append("C:\Program Files\Python24\Lib")
>>> sys.path.append("C:\Program Files\Python24\Lib\site-packages\win32")
>>> import cext
>>> cext.install()
>>> cext.createFilexx()
Loading the module win32file
FileName C:\Program Files\Python24\Lib\site-packages\win32\win32file.pyd

*ImportError: No module named pywintypes*

In this context, I want to know, if this cextension module has any known
caveats wrt Win types ?

Cheers,
John
