Keypirinha 2.21 and below bring the comtypes library in version 1.1.3.
This version contains a bug that blocks the import of comtypes.client if the cache module for generated code (comtypes.gen ) is created but not writable. This happens if KP is run once as Administrator, who is allowed to create the comtypes.gen module and later as user, who cannot write into the gen directory.

This bug causes #334 and ueffel/Keypirinha-Plugin-Kill#15 respectively.

According to issue 124 of the comtypes repo ( that bug is fixed in newer version.

So please consider updating comtypes to version 1.1.7 (newest version at the time of writing) or at least 1.1.5.
