Oh, that's probably a bug in Mono. I haven't had a chance to test the
pre-built package on Windows to its full extend. I used Mono to compile
the assemblies and binaries. Python.exe and the assemblies worked
like a charm on Windows but I forgot to see if clr.pyd works, too

I'm going to investigate the problem and send a bug report to the mono
developers. Can anybody please send me a Windows binary of clr.pyd?

About embedding:
Could you please release some sample code how to embed Python.NET and
Python 2.x on Windows? I've just some C code for Mono.
