When calling cx_Oracle.connect(), I get the exception:

"RuntimeError: Unable to acquire Oracle environment handle"

Does anyone know what this error mean ? I'm a total newbie regarding Oracle 
management (I've just installed it for the first time and tried to connect with 
Python), so that may be a stupid thing I did / didn't do. Connecting to my 
database with the console enterprise manager do work, however. Also, I started 
all the Oracle services I could, in case it would help (but it didn't)...

I'm using cx_Oracle V3.1, Oracle personal edition V9. with server and 
client tools installed.
