Error importing wxPython

Hi,

I just installed wxPython from http://wxpython.org/download.php. When
I import (import wx), I get this error:

ImportError: DLL load failed: The application has failed to start
because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the
application event log for more detail.

Has anyone had this problem and how can I resolve it?

Thanks in advance.

I haven't seen that one before. What OS are you using? Did you install
the latest wxPython? Is there a previous version of wxPython already
installed? If so, was that intentional?
