[wingide-users] WingIDE on Windows 8.1

Hi,

I just got a new PC which came with Win 8.1.

I am having a problem when I run things in WingIDE.

It works running Python 2.7.6 directly:
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.3.9600]

C:\>cd python27

C:\Python27>python
Python 2.7.6 (default, Nov 10 2013, 19:24:18) [MSC v.1500 32 bit 
(Intel)] on win
32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
 >>> import win32api
 >>>

But when I run it in the WingIDE Python shell I get:

2.7.6 (default, Nov 10 2013, 19:24:18) [MSC v.1500 32 bit (Intel)]
Python Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more 
information.
import win32api
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "<string>", line 1, in <fragment>
ImportError: DLL load failed: %1 is not a valid Win32 application.

Any idea what might cause this?

Werner
