How do I install dlls and exes for libtidy and others?

1. I already asked how to setup libxml2 and libxslt, but nobody answered how to... so if anyone knows I'm still having those problems.
2. I now can't get libtidy to work, which requires the same thing: I need to put some dlls and exes somewhere to make it work in Python.  Thing is, I don't know where.  There are no instructions on this part.
I get the following error:
import tidy
OSError: Couldn't find libtidy, please make sure it is installed.
I downloaded these two files (the exe and the dll):
I copied the exe and dll to the Python directory and Python\Lib and Python\Dlls ... nothing worked
I ran this installer (didn't solve the problem):
So, how can I setup libtidy to work with Python?
What do I do with the exe and dll files?
Do I need to make additional changes to the system?
How do I get other programs like libxml2 and libxslt to work with python -- as in what do I do with the exe and dlls?
