Well, they are installed:

Python 2.4.4 (#71, Oct 18 2006, 08:34:43) [MSC v.1310 32 bit (Intel)] on win32

>>> import win32api

>>> print win32api

<module 'win32api' from 'c:\Python24\lib\site-packages\win32\win32api.pyd'>

But I don't think subprocess.py uses them:

if mswindows:

    import threading

    import msvcrt

    if 0: # <-- change this to use pywin32 instead of the _subprocess driver

        import pywintypes

        from win32api import [...]


        from _subprocess import *

I did try changing that "if 0" to "if 1", and it had no effect: same errors.

Bundled with Python 2.4.4.
