OK, in that case it finds msvcr90.dll via PATH. I was only thinking of the DLL being installed in a subdirectory of the system WinSxS directory. I still think in this case it would be better to let extension modules get access to the activation context that Python saves and subsequently activates when loading extension modules. ctypes could activate this context before calling LoadLibrary.
