This machine has 1.5.2, 2.1.1 and 2b2 on it (with 2.1 being 
registered). This would also cause problems for py2exe or
Installer, since they're designed to allow packaging up an
app and running it on a machine with no Python, or a different
version of Python.

You could do repeated calls to GetModuleHandle until one 
succeeds. Deciding when to start / give up is another problem.
