Thank you for your reply
Yes, the article is interesting but it does not show how to tweak the
I use VC++ to write the myHello.dll in which just return "hello"
Very simple one just for testing embedding and extending python in C.
Then I write the python script import myHello, a function that call
printHello from myHello.dll.  I write an Test.exe (using C) in which
call python script to get "hello" string.
If I run the script on Dos prompt, I get the "hello" string.
If I run test.exe, I got "import module not found error message."  
However, I test.exe program did call python script, but why python
script can  not import myHello module.
I put myHello.dll in the same folder with python script.
I set PYTHONPATH to that folder. 
I am missing something in the setting, but don't know how and where to
set it.
