Mmmm, I always put the DLLs in \windows\system32 and that usually works.
I'm not a windows expert, but I've read that it is enough to put them in
the package directory (i.e., the place you are trying out), but I
vaguely remember that this can create problems...

Another possibility is that the binary that I've generated could be
broken (but it is strange as nobody has complained about this, and it
has been downloaded many times by now).

Well, try with the \windows\system32 (btw, you only need to copy there
hdf5dll.dll, szlibdll.dll and zlib1.dll) directory and tell me how it
goes. If it works, I'll remove the alternate place for DLL's (i.e.
python_installation_path\Lib\site-packages\tables) unless somebody with
more experience with Windows can bring more light here.
