Just in case you are wondering. The setup.py script places the msvcp90.dll file in the folder dist\Microsoft.VC90.CRT as instructed. That makes it all the more puzzling that it cannot find the file since it already found it and did something with it.

Oh yes, the setup.py script has the following two lines at the top as well:

from distutils.core import setup, Extension
import os
