When I run the following line while the 32 bit version of python is installed it returns false, however with the 64 bit version it correctly returns true.

I'm using Python 2.7.2 with Windows 7 Professional 64bit.

This is the Windows x64 file system redirector at work. I can't get 
through to msdn at the moment to get a link, but Google for those

Ok, thanks, that fixed it. I'll probably post some example code for anyone else who stumbles across this with the same problem, don't have the time right now however.
