Did this (I use VS2008).

There is then a little tweaking to do (I do it on the config properties for "Release" and then set the mode to that in the main window so I don't get complaints about a missing Python32_d):

Yes, adjusted my project settings thus:

For "All Configurations", I replaced $(PYTHON_INCLUDE) in "C/C++:General:Additional Include Directories" with my literal path "M:\HG\trunk\SDK\Python_32_dll\Include".

For "Release", I replaced "$(PYTHON_LIB)" in "Linker:Input:Additional Dependencies" with my literal path "M:\HG\trunk\SDK\Python_32_dll\python27.lib".

Right Click example.i -> Properties -> Configuration Properties ->Custom Build Tool -> General -> Command Line: This needs to be fixed so it points at your swig executable and possibly also to quote the path argument if yours contains spaces.

I corrected this so it looks like:
echo In order to function correctly, please ensure the following environment variables are correctly set:
echo on
set SWIG_LIB=M:\HG\trunk\SDK\swig-2.0.4\Lib
M:\HG\trunk\SDK\swig-2.0.4\swig.exe -python $(InputPath)

(Note that I added a setting for the SWIG_LIB environment variable so SWIG can find its support files.)

My build succeeded:

Hopefully, there's something in here that will fix your issue.
