AFAIK, PYTHONPATH only works for the imported modules. For the main
module, you have to do give the full path.
OR you could try out the new flag -m, which allows to run directly a
module from the standard library and - I guess - also user modules if
PYTHONPATH is set correcltly. So try from a "DOS Box" the command:

 "c\python26>python -m brian.py"
