As expected, everything started working when I added
boost_thread-vc90-mt-1_38.dll and boost_python-vc90-mt-1_38.dll to the
system path and "set HOME=c:\home\fasiha" though '123456' works too :P
I'll clean up the wiki :)

Hey everyone, it turns out PyCUDA on Linux was such a
bit hit that
some colleagues are asking for the same thing for their Windows boxes
also. I have made sure the NVIDIA CUDA SDK examples work and am
following the wiki installation for MSVC 9.0 with some trouble.
I used the BoostPro 1.38 installer to install default variants for
Visual C++ 9.0 (Visual Studio 2008), with variants Multithread, DLL;
Multithread; Multithread, static runtime; and Single thread, static
runtime. I install the default components as well as Boost DateTime,
Boost Python, and Boost Threads, without which the installation of
PyCUDA won't happen. I've tried various other combinations of variants
and compilers but test_driver.py fails with the same error message:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "test_driver.py", line 472, in <module>
line 1, in <module>
import pycuda.driver as cuda
line 1, in <module>
from _driver import *
ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found.
I was slightly confused with the instruction to "set HOME=123456", I'm
not too familiar with Windows, so I tried that as well as "set
HOME=c:/home/fasiha" (and with backslashes), the same error.
I'm also slightly confused by this sentence in the wiki: "To work with
pycuda You need to have Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 (VS 8) included
in the PATH variable (for example c:\mvs8\vc\bin, where mvs8 - is your
vc8 installation part) (otherwise, CUDA complains about version 6 and
7.1 !)" I assume that this is not a problem for me since PyCUDA
doesn't seem to complain about MSVC.
I am so sorry to unload yet another plea for installation assistance,
I never ever thought I'd be installing it in Windows but I guess it's
a small price for success :) I'll keep trying some stuff and report
any further info.
