That python.vcp file is incomplete, it just allows a debuggable python.exe to be made, 
not the full python23.dll

Anyway, I think what you want to do is run the wcearm.bat file to setup your 
environment, then 


That should be it.


I am currently workingon David Kashtan's stuff for WCE300 (Straight Pocket PC), and 
I'll be exposing the modified source via an anonymous subversion repository.

When I'm happy with all the tweaks, my intention is to merge all the WINCE changes 
into the Python 2.4 source tree.
