You should be calling C:\Python23\scripts\twistd (or something like 
that), not Lib\twisted\scripts\twistd.py. When you install the windows 
package for Twisted, there should be a start menu item that runs a shell 
with a properly set up environment so you can just type "twistd" or 
"mktap" and so on and it'll DTRT.
