Is Active Python 2.7.1 supported by Visual Build Pro 7.7

Does anyone know if Visual Build Pro 7.7 supports Active Python version 2.7.1. Active Python V2.6.3 worked fine.
We use embedded active python in our scripts and switched to Active Python 2.7.1 and our embedded scripts in VBP 7.7 are failing now.

It appears that the Active Scripting support in ActivePython has been broken since v2.6.5.12. This was reported to ActiveState by D. Maul @ Kodak in Sept. 2010 (OTS#020228839).

Does Kinook have any plans on fixing the problem in the very near future? If not what is the recommendation given that our application is moving to Python 2.7.1

It's an issue with ActivePython, not Visual Build, so it's not something we can fix. ActiveState needs to fix the Active Scripting support, or you'll have to keep using an older version of ActivePython that doesn't have this problem.

We already provided this to ActiveState last year, but here is a test program that demonstrates the problem, in case you would like to send it to them again: http://www.kinook.com/Download/Temp/PyTest.zip
