Yes, that's because the official python binary for windows is linked
against that dll. You may try pyMinGW, which is a patch to compile
python under MinGW and avoid such errors. You can get the patch and
the instrucctions here:
However, I don't advice you to use the generated python by MinGW in a
production server since I have heard the binaries generated by this
compiler aren't optimized like the official distribution and it may be
a performance issue.
I would first try with the binaries as I said previously:
1) Install the python 2.3.4 binary
2) Install the egenix mxDateTime extension for python 2.3 
3) Install the psycopg binary (again for python 2.3)
4) Copy everything related to the genix mx extensions and psycopg from
Generating your own binaries is also a nice homework, but if you are
thinking about using it in production environments, then you had better
use a decent C compiler. Even cgywin has been reported to produce a
slow python/zope binaries.
: The Website www.egenix.com is now broken. Does anybody know where
can one get this package?
