I just installed Report Lab on my Win2k machine, in the Python2.3 
site-packages directory. I also put the Report Lab DLLs into 

Report Lab seems to run fine up to a point. I can generate the 
documentation (though with one important complain, see below) and run 
the demos, e.g. odyssey, colors, gadfly, stdfonts, etc.


python -c "import _renderPM"

fails with

Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "<string>", line 1, in ?
ImportError: DLL load failed: Access is denied.

So I dowloaded the unpacked version of _renderPM.pyd from


to no avail. The import still failed.

What am I missing?
