You're using twisted/scripts/twistd.py somehow, which doesn't work on Windows.  You want to be using bin/twistd.  The Win32 installer should have added a "Twisted Command Shell" or something similar to your start menu.  Try running that, and running twistd inside it.

twisted/python/syslog.py exists, certainly, but it is trying to import syslog from the standard library, which is not available on Win32.
