Are you installing Python for all users and not just yourself? It must
be installed for all users.

Other than ensuring you do that, can't really help you with mod_python
on Windows.

BTW, what Python web application are you actually wanting to run? The
mod_python module isn't only option for Python hosting with Apache on
Windows. The other option though only supplies binaries for Python 2.6
