Hi Uli,

this is how it worked for me:

1. download pywin32 package manually from sourceforge site
    for example this: http://sourceforge.net/projects/pywin32/files/pywin32/Build%20214/pywin32-214.win32-py2.6.exe/download
2. In virtualenv do: easy_install <path_to_downloaded_pywin32_package>

Dear Windows-developers in the Grok community,

As a non-Windows developer that searched half the internet for a
satisfying solution without success, I'd like to know:

How do you install pywin32 in a virtualenv --no-site-packages?

I found tons of complaints from users of all sorts of Python frameworks
about that issue but no solution yet. Is there one?

If not: what would be the recommended way to get pywin32 installed from
a windows perspective?

Just curious,
