Thank you. That works!

By the way there is a few more things I find out in order to package shell  
extension with py2exe. It has to be built as an in-process COM server. So  
I have added this in the setup.py


context_menu_handler = Target(
     description = "Context Menu Handler",
     # what to build.  For COM servers, the module name (not the
     # filename) must be specified!
     modules = ["minds.weblib.win32.context_menu"],
     create_exe = False,
##    create_dll = False,
     )

setup(
     ...		
     com_server = [context_menu_handler],
     ...)
