I posted this morning but I don't know what happened to my post!

In any case, PySqlite is the distribution I have used and is available

I believe there is another module called APSW (Another Python Sqlite
Wrapper) available, that I stumbled upon just today, after reading your
post. Home page :

Please read the section "pysqlite differences" to see which one you
want to install.

As for installation, it should be as simple as downloading the win32
binaries for your Python distro and executing it. I do not have admin
rights on my Win2K PC at work, but it installed and worked just fine.
So, you should not have any problem. You will not have to install
anything additional other the python-sqlite module itself.

Good choice on selecting Sqlite..I love it and hope you will enjoy it
