I believe i have download the correct one 'ad3‑2.0.2‑cp27‑cp27m‑win_amd64.whl' now i am trying to install it through pip. when i try to install it i get 'File is not a Zip file'.  Can some one be kind engought to guide me though install win32com.client pkg please.

https://pypi.python.org/pypi/pypiwin32#downloads

then did you try

pip install pypiwin32

I think you meant 'pypiwin32'

'C:\Python27\ArcGISx6410.4\Scripts>pip install pypiwin32' worked.

Thanks!

Dan, is there any reason to do this using pip instead of the windows installer at sourceforge, which adds an entry to add remove programs and all that Windows jazz? I've always pointed people to the sourceforge download.

I clean out stuff manually before and after or through windows doing installs.  Also, I still use pythonwin for an IDE on occasions and installing it took care of all the dependencies and cleanup.

If they both work, it really doesn't matter, I just normally use pip or conda now ... fewer things to remember
