Background programs on Windows XP

I have been using the following code the run a program in the backgroup
on Windows'95 and WindowsNT machines:
os.spawnl(os.P DETACH, 'c:\\python22\\python', 'python',
However, when one of the users of this program changed from Windows'95
to WindowsXP (they also changed from Python2.1 to Python2.2 but I didn't
think this was probably relevant) this stopped working.
I cannot find any information about this in the python documentation or
newsgroups so I would appreciate any comments or suggestions.
