Sounds very much like a bug in your editor to me.
So, Fernando's proposed solution sounds like the way to go, since your patch 
is not even needed for every Windoze user, but just for users of this 
(specific version of) editor.

BTW: Why use the try..except if the except branch seems to work always?  
AFAICS, I would skip use of the extra package and always use the general 
fallback method.
