How do you notice that you don't have the required DLL? The DLLs aren't 
copied into system32. The new location is the side by side assembly 
directory WinSxS. You need adminstration privileges to install SxS 

By the way VC Express 2005 is the wrong version. Python 2.6 and newer 
are compiled with VS 2008.
