I have Windows 7. Mingw and VS2010 installed.
I'm trying to follow the tutorial to build CLAM with minGW and I'm
getting errors when trying to
run the setup.py from pywin32, cause it needs vs2003 to be installed

i've tried "C:\pywin32-214>setup.py install -c mingw32" and
"C:\pywin32-214>setup.py  -c mingw32"

but they don't work. anyone have any suggestions?

error: Python was built with Visual Studio 2003;
extensions must be built with a compiler than can generate compatible binaries.
Visual Studio 2003 was not found on this system. If you have Cygwin installed,
you can try compiling with MingW32, by passing "-c mingw32" to setup.py.
