[New-bugs-announce] [issue26598] Embbedable zip does not import modules in (zip)subdirectory

New submission from Simon:
I downloaded the Embeddable zip file from the Python site, (https://www.python.org/downloads/release/python-351/) and rand the code below.
When I run the code below certain modules are not imported while others are imported fine.
The modules that are not imported seem to be the ones sub-directories within the zip file.
(omitted obvious code, error checking and some cleanup)
Py_SetPath(L"path\\to\\python35.zip"); // embeddable from the python site.
PyThreadState *mainstate = PyThreadState_Get();
PyInterpreterState* mainInterpreterState = mainstate->interp;
PyObject *main_module = PyImport_AddModule("__main__");
PyObject *main_dict = PyModule_GetDict(main_module);
PyObject *local_dic = PyDict_New();
const char* s = "import ctypes\n";
PyObject * PyRes = PyRun_String(s, Py_file_input, main_dict, local_dic);
PyObject* ex = PyErr_Occurred();
if (NULL != ex)
// didn't work, import error.
The exact same code above manages to import other modules as long as they are located inside the root of the zip file.
modules like json/ctypes and so on are not imported as they are in a sub directory.
