I have a feeling that it may be related to the fact that the starter
modules (run*.exe) were built with VC6, which matches with Python
builds up to 2.3, but not 2.4 (which is built with VC7). So you're
probably running into a mismatch between C runtime libraries.

Since it sounds like you have VS 2003 available to you, you might try
rebuilding the appropriate run*.exe (the source is in the installer
tree beneath the source directory). VS 2003 should auto-convert the
..dsw/.dsp files but there's at least one dependency (zlib) that you
might have to build separately and handle manually (e.g., update the
project to locate your particular zlib library).
