Windows PE and Python 2.6 (Side-by-Side error)

P: n/a
Hallo,
I like Python 2.6 and I like to use it anywhere, even within Windows PE.

In former version of Python (<= 2.5.x) it was easy to bring it to a
Windows PE system: Install Python to Windows XP or Vista and (robo-)
copy the whole directory off Python (and all sub directories) to the
Windows PE system, adapt the path and it works.

With Python 2.6 I receive errors in the kind of '''Error: The
Side-by-Side configuration information in
"d:\4_debug\python26\PYTHON.EXE" contains errors. The application has
failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect.
Please see the application event log for more detail (14001).
Warning: At least one module has an unresolved import due to a missing
export function in a delay-load dependent module.'''

What I did: I copied all DLLs which DEPWALK found to C:\Python26, but
the error remained...

Has anyone an idea?
Thank you in advance

You should not install "for all users" before copying it,
but "just for me".

You'll need to install the Microsoft C runtime redistributables. An
installer to do this is buried in Microsoft Visual Studio 2008. The are
installed to the C:\Windows\WinSxS subdirectory. Take a look at this
directory and see if Microsoft really has solved "DLL Hell".
