This generally means that a dependent DLL is missing. Try the following
C:>dumpbin /imports wincerapi.pyd | grep -i dll
This is a simple way to show all the DLLs we depend on. It is not
recursive but that is unlikely to matter here (a free tool called
"depends" is better if you need these extra features).
Hopefully you will find a DLL named that does not exist on your system.
If it is not that obvious, try the "depends" tool - it may be able to
tell you that only certain functions (as opposed to the DLL itself) have
Or just wait for Brad ;)
