The vtk*Python.dll's will link to the vtk*.dlls so I think you do need
to install vtkCore.

Also put the directory that contains the vtk*Python.dlls in the
sys.path.  Actually rather than the sys.path hack the recommended way
(which internally does the same thing) you should set your PYTHONPATH
env variable to point to "E:\\Programs\\vtk40\\Wrapping\\Python" and
the directory that contains the various Python DLL's.
