New issue 2988: Windows: can't find _sqlite3_cffi.pypy-41.pyd although it is here

Armin Rigo:

A user reports getting this message on Windows (6.0.0 worked fine, 7.0.0 and 7.1.0 fail):

    'C:\pypy2\lib_pypy\_sqlite3_cffi.pypy-41.pyd': The specified module could not be found

This occurs as soon as he tries to ``import sqlite3``.  More information from him:

    I've tested it on two different Win10 PCs (32bit PyPy on
    64bit Win10) and both exhibit the same behaviour.

    I've got the answer: With PyPy version >= 7.0.0 you have
    to add PyPy's root folder to PATH in Environment Variables,
    that wasn't required with versions <= 6.0.0

This is not the answer, though, because for me on a very similar setting it just works fine, without setting any PATH.  If we could reproduce this it would be great.
