Hi Navid,
I'm not a Windows guy so I really can't recommend how to proceed with the specific question you asked. But if there's any way you could upgrade the machine to Python >= 2.5, your problem will go away because those versions of Python come with a built-in sqlite interface. That might be an easier approach for you.

Good luck
