You need to create your own sub-key, with any name, under the PythonPath
key and add your path there. The reason is that Python only looks for
that root key when it can't sniff the location of the library itself
based on the location of the executable - and in most cases it can.
Python does however enumerate and use the sub-keys in all cases.
