2.6 windows install

I installed python2.6 to a netapp device. I can use it from my local windows 
machine (XP). But others cannot use it from their pcs.

They get this response
"The system cannot execute the specified program.".

If they double click on python.exe, they get a window

with: This application has failed to start because the application

configuration is incorrect.  Reinstalling the application may fix this


When I installed it I didn't see any mention of an 'administrators' install, 
it just installed. The permissions on the directories where it installed are 
set wide-open for everyone.

Any ideas on what I'm missing here?
