Accessing python from a network share in windows 7

I access python from a network share. This works fine on XP but on
windows 7 it throws the following error:
Python 2.6.1 (r261:67517, Dec 4 2008, 16:51:00) [MSC v.1500 32 bit
(Intel)] on
win32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

>>> import random


Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
File "t:\win32\python-2.6.1\lib\random.py", line 871, in <module>
_inst = Random()
File "t:\win32\python-2.6.1\lib\random.py", line 96, in __init__
self.seed(x)
File "t:\win32\python-2.6.1\lib\random.py", line 110, in seed
a = long(_hexlify(_urandom(16)), 16)
WindowsError: [Error 127] The specified procedure could not be found
Is there some security policy that I need to enable/disable to use
python from a network on windows 7?

It works without any issue on win7 if I copy python to my local drive.
Also, accessing python from the same network share works fine on win
XP. So I am suspecting some security policy of win7 that is causing
problem while accessing it over a network share.
