I think this is because DLLs\_tkinter.pyd doesn't exist, not because 
sys.path is wrong. Do you agree? I will try to add it back in the next 
release and/or as a separate package.

If PythonCE is installed in "\Storage Card\Program Files\Python25" then it 
should work.

Thanks should go to the person who contributed it :-)

I think this is because the release doesn't include pySQLite yet.

What is it? Is it a part of the standard library?
