[mod_python] still an Invalid command 'PythonHandler' .....

I don't know a heck of a lot about windows... but you might try looking at 
httpd.conf (or whatever the main apache configuration file is called). You 
need to somewhere load the python module (using the LoadModule command) in 
order for apaceh to recognize that command. That assumes that you built 
mod_python as a dynamic shared object.

Please send along a little more info about your problem:
1) how did you build mod_python (is it a shared object or built into apache)?
2) show the pieces of httpd.conf that are supposed to initialize the python 
module (i.e. point to the library you built).
3) what troubleshooting have you already tried (I don't know "everything in 
this list")?
