This is no help, only a confirmation that you're not the
only one having this problem.
I get the same error on my Win95 system after de-installing
Python 1.5.2 and win32all-132 and installing Python 2.0b1
and win32all-134.
The following session shows that the problem is not really
in locating the file but that the OS somehow fails to actually
load this particular DLL on our systems. Another DLL
(e.g. mmapfile.pyd) loads without problems!
