Sorry, should've mentioned that the filename was made up, no idea how
its called on Windows. And as I said I also don't know the layout of the
PyQt binary packages, so no idea what is to be considered the "Qt"
directory or wether such a thing exists at all in the binary package.

As even sqlite fails, that probably means the plugin is not found at
all. Try adding C:\Python26\Lib\site-packages\PyQt4 to PATH.

Also check what  QSqlDataBase.drivers() returns?
