Hi Andreas,

we want to use dia as drawing tool on win32 machines (WinXP/W2k).
The installation of the binary package on win32 is O.K. but the integration
of the python plugin isn't.
I think the reason is the old python dll (2.2) dia looks for.

How can I get dia working with it's python plugin and a newer installed
python ?

Unfortunately, you'll have to compile Dia and all its depencies
yourself in order to use a Python version 2.2 on Windows. The reason is that Dia is using
msvcrt.dll, while newer Python versions are linked against msvcrtXX.dll versions.
Still almost, but not completely true. The last official Python version
build against msvcrt is 2.3 not 2.2. See also:
