PyCrypto is partly written in C (in the src/ directory) and partly written
in Python. You are using the Python parts and ignoring the C parts, which
is why it's not working. As I mentioned before, the parts in C will need
to be compiled into machine code before they can be used. You'll either
need to build it, or you can get Michael Foord's pre-built binaries for
Windows from his website:
