thank you for your reply..

It ends in .dll

My output of "python -V" shows 2.5c2

The dll is distributed with a third party library, it claimed to be
compatible with 2.4, It was installed at "d:\" on my box, and the path
had been added to my PYTHONPATH variable.

yep, it works very well with python 2.4, so, I'm just wondering if
there is a fix for using with 2.5

uh.. not yet, because they clearly mentioned that in the doc.

I already uninstalled the version 2.4. and put python25 in drive "d:".
there's probably no problem with my environment variables, maybe I
should check for a updated version of python.

thanks again.
