Each Python release has a new version of the Python
interpreter in the PythonXX.dll.  Your Python 2.2 is using
Python22.dll, but you have an old version of zlib which
was linked using Python15.dll.

You need to find the old zlib and remove it.  Then
find the new zlib.pyd that uses Python22.dll and install it.
