Using PTVS to run the code:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found.
Running the same code outside of PTVS works fine. In PTVS it fails running the line above as part of a project and on a standalone file. It also fails in the REPL window whenever a project or file is open. To be more precise, if you have no files open and reset
the REPL window it loads the win32api module fine. If you open any file or project (not just python ones), then reset the REPL the import fails.
I am running Enthought Canopy Express 32 bit version 1.4.1
I have Visual Studio 2013 Express with update 3 and PTVS 2.1.20620.00 (other VS details are in the attached image)
