Thanks for your answers Martin and Peter,

I figured out why python.exe was asking for MSVCR80.dll. The first 
time I compiled the library, MS Visual C++ Express 2005 was used 
during the build (despite my PATH pointing to MS Visual C++ Toolkit 
2003). When I removed Express 2005, I forgot to remove the build 
directory of my library. I've also had to remove and reinstall the C++ 
Toolkit, the platform SDK and the .NET Framework SDK and modify and my environment variables according to:

but finally it did work.

And Peter, your solution worked perfectly. A great alternative to 
installing all the MS libraries.
