Hi Faizan,

Here is an answer I gave a few month ago about a similar problem.

One of the possible cause of your problem is that Apache does find
mod_python.so but not one of the DLL it relies on. Unfortunately the
error reporting in this case is quite scarce and misguiding.

The candidates missing DLLs are python24.dll and the Microsoft Runtime
DLLS (normally msvcr71.dll and msvcp71.dll).

Make sure that your Python directory and the runtime DLLs can be found
on your PATH. The runtime DLLs are normaly copied in your Python
directory, so putting the Python directory on your PATH variable should
do the trick.

Also, make sure that the user which is running Apache has its PATH
variable properly set. The best way to do this is to define it at the
system-wide level, but logging it under the user and defining the
variable at the user level is also possible.

Hopefully we'll get the mod_python Wiki up and running real soon now, so
we'll be able to add a bit of documentation on the subject.
