I captured the detailed traceback with the following line of code:

os.dup2(output.fileno(), sys.stderr.fileno())

Here is the traceback:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "foo.py", line 225, in <module>
    main()
  File "foo.py", line 196, in main
    daoEngine = win32com.client.Dispatch(r'DAO.DBEngine.36')
  File "win32com\client\__init__.pyc", line 95, in Dispatch
  File "win32com\client\dynamic.pyc", line 98, in _GetGoodDispatchAndUserName
  File "win32com\client\dynamic.pyc", line 78, in _GetGoodDispatch
pywintypes.com_error: (-2147024770, 'The specified module could not be found.', None, None)

How do I capture the output?  The compiled code module is being invoked from CreateProcess with dwCreationFlags:=CREATE_NO_WINDOW.

You are correct; that line of code is wrapped with the following:

    try:
        daoEngine = win32com.client.Dispatch(r'DAO.DBEngine.36')
    except:
        print sys.exc_info()[0]

How can I obtain a more detailed traceback?

Remove the exception handler.
