trapping DLL import issues without blocking pop up window

  there is following issue: "import cx_Oracle" on windows pops up a nice 
  'DLL missing' window in case there indeed is no CLI.DLL (or something 
like that). Then the exception is raised.

Catching the exception is obviously not a problem, but the popup 
practically blocks the application and requires user intervention.

There could be a legitimate case where Oracle environment is not 
available  yet the program might want to get around it somehow.

any idea how to prevent those popups.
