Python.exe has stopped working

Yesterday I successfully installed sip, pyqt4 and vtk (including python bindings) on a Windows 7 64bit VM.

However, when I do "import vtk", a dialog pops up saying "python.exe has stopped working".

Event Viewer shows that the error is related to sip, however "import sip" gives me no error
