Hi and Thanks,

your script works, but there are still some problems for me:

1) How do you get your extension module loaded during
   development ?
   If I use the script, the extension xxx.pyd is built
   in the same directory as setup.py
   But the script which loads the extension is one
   level below.

2) If I use the install command of setup.py my
   extension is copied to .../site-packagen/xxx.pyd,
   the rest of the package will be below

I would be happy if  "setup.py build_ext --inplace" would  put the 
extension module
to Lib/
and if "setup.py install" would put the extension module into the 
package folder
below .../site-packages/

Greetings, Uwe
