This should work. What platform are you on? Are you seeing the exceptions when the shell starts or when executing an import statement?

One thought is that maybe you're running a different Python install in Wing.  If so, look at the value of sys.executable in the Python you want to use (with the after 'import sys' and put that full path into the Python Executable in Project Properties (or in Wing 101 this is in Configure Python in the Edit menu).  Then restart the Python Shell from its Options menu.
