I have an issue with the registering of python dll. I installed the mushclient (tried 2 times) and my python did not work (actually it works for normal python apps)...it just refused to register the script engine no matter what i did...
I have windows ME btw.
Dunno what to do with it...?

here is what it keeps crying:

Error number: -2147221005
Event: finding CLSID of scripting language "Python"
Description: Error -2147221005 occurred when finding CLSID of scripting language "Python":

Invalid class string

There is a difference between Python apps (which use the executable) and Python scripting (which uses the DLL).

There is a "register" Python app somewhere in the (Python) download - you need to find that and run it. Reinstalling MUSHclient won' t do much.

I'm having the exact same problem, but I can't find a register app. I've installed python and all, searched for anything that will help but I still get the same error.

Have you read this:

http://www.gammon.com.au/forum/bbshowpost.php?bbsubject_id=1666

In particular this sentence: "After installing it, run C:\python22\lib\site-package\win32comext\client\pyscript.py --register to enable the IActiveScript registry entries.".

Ok found it. Apparently python doesn't come with the stuff I need for scripting, and I had python 2.3. I downloaded the windows stuff for 2.3 but there was some bizarre error during install, so I removed both and got python 2.2 and the windows extensions for that and it worked fine. Thanks for the help.

Even though this is old... There was some issue with ActivePython beyond version 2.2.2 (build 224) - which was the last one of the breed that I managed to get to work - that prevented win32 extensions from registering correctly and me from upgrading to Python 2.3. Installing Python 2.3.3 from python.org and win32all 163 on top of that worked like a charm though. So if you want to use the latest version of Python with Mushclient then use the original distributions from python.org.

I'm having a bit of a problem similar to Blasphemy. I installed python 2.4 from the python.org site, but I can't locate the pyscript file. The "site-packages" directory exists, but is completely empty.

Did they remove all pacakages from the base installation of python?

I tried searching for the pyscript download, but what I got didn't seem to help the problem much. Any help would be appreciated.

You need Python (which you have) plus the package called "pywin32". A link to that is usually present on the www.python.org download page for each new version. Install pywin32 and it should start working.

Thanks Ked! Python scripting seems to be working dandy now.

For those who are wondering, you can get python at:
www.python.org


You can download the pywin32 package from sourceforge:
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=78018&package_id=79063

After installing it, you'll find the pyscript.py file in
\Python24\Lib\site-packages\win32comext\axscript\client\pyscript.py

Which is a slightly different location than described in previous posts.

I know it's been a while on this forum post. But has anyone had any luck getting Python3.1 to work. I've tried ActivePython and pywin32. I have been unfortunate in getting getting windows 7 to register python as a scripting engine for MUSH.
