As Martin says, we aren't inclined to implement or maintain the equivalent of depends.exe in order to provide a slightly better error message.

If anyone wants to reopen this issue, provide a patch. Otherwise devs are just going to close it again.

Optionally, campaign for a fix on python-list and see if you can persuade someone *else* to provide a patch.

You could even go to the source of the problem and ask *Microsoft* to provide a better error message.
