Why? SQLite is a separate product. Python bundled the then
current version in its standard distribution, but time has moved on.
You have apparently installed a more recent version of SQLite.

2.6 may or may not have the same version as you but regardless
you should be able to get the older version of Python to work
with the newer SQLite instal;l, provided the newer version has
a Python library available - which it usually has.

I don't thing the vanilla Python will make any difference. SQLite is
bundled with Python not with ActiveState.

I think you might need to install more than the DLL. Check
the SQLite web site for a new Ptython interface and install
that version.
