It would be nice to get this issue resolved out for 2.6.4:
The problem is that extensions built with 2.6.x will not work
when used with a User-only installation of Python on machines that
don't already have the MS VC90 CRT DLLs installed system-wide.
There's a patch available that appears to work, but someone with
more manifest-Windows-DLL-fu than me will need to have a look at it.
One possible approach would be to use the patch in 2.6.4 and then
continue digging deeper until 2.6.5 is released.
