[Grok-dev] Errors with the current dependencies??

Sorry about unexpectedly including Windows.  My initial issue 
was with Linux installation and I did verify that it was a problem
on that platform in addition to the initial report regarding Apple.
It seems that the pinning problem is known by the developers and
will be taken care of in a future release.

While I had the chance, I tried windows and came across the 
problem mentioned.  It will be nice if the upstream developers add 
the logic to include win32api when necessary.  (It appears that 
newer versions of virtualenv may need it also.)

This problem is really an edge case to a fix applied to grokproject.
I will start a new topic to discuss this and add a bug report if 

Thank you,
