This should be unnecessary.  Python will automatically add all
subfolders in site-packages to sys.path, or should anyway.

Try removing that, then from the interactive prompt do a

  import sys

to see all the stuff that is set up automatically.

If that's *not* working, try just setting PYTHONHOME to point
to the c:\python22 folder and try it again.  *That* should work.
