Thanks for the response Martin.  

The 64-bit architecture is AMD64.  I am using Python from
ActiveState.  This version does provide 64-bit support for AMD64.  

Ok, it sounds like I need to build it myself.  What CVS modules will I
need to get?

Why 64-bit architecture are you talking about (processor, operating
system, Python distribution)? (ok, later you say it's VistaPE. Still not
sure whether that is Itanium or AMD64, and what Python version)

No - you will need to build it yourself. There isn't an official Python
binary release for Win64 on AMD64, either (atleast not from python.org).
