If you installed Python 2.2.2 there should be a python22.dll file in
your C:\WINDOWS\system32 directory (or whereever Windows is installed
on your machine). Normally the DLL will be found there.

Notice however that the version is coded in the file name of the DLL.
All Python 2.2.x versions are delivered with a DLL-file called
python22.dll. Python 2.1.x had a file called python21.dll. If the
application you are trying to run has been built against a version of
python different from 2.2.x it will be looking for a python??.dll file
with ?? the major and minor version of python for which it was built.
You would have to install the required version of python then. Don't
try to rename the DLL, your application won't run. Try to find out
from the error message or the documentation of your application which
version you need and download that from

Hope this helps.
