Remove dependency on pywin32 as ctypes should always be available #2467

Avoids an issue where pip can't uninstall pywin32 because pip itself loads the pywin32 DLLs, and so they are locked when pip needs to delete them. When pywin32 isn't available the code falls back to ctypes anyway - there's no benefit to using pywin32 over ctypes, and ctypes is always available on Windows, so this should not cause an issue for anyone.
