This request is related to 
my (false) "Bugs item #1038410"
since it is by design and it won't be fixed
I thought I could be suggested as a new feature.

Add a command line switch to be able to specify
python install directory in silent installation mode

in other word it should be something like this:

Python-X.Y.Z.exe /s /d MAINDIR=C:\some_dir\python

IIRC the windows wise installer configuration file is not 
provided into python cvs source tree so I can only
suggest this google-groups thread as a hint:

Subject: "Passing the path name to a silent install. How?"

Starting with Python 2.4 it is possible to specify 
a TARGETDIR parameter to the msi installer.
for more details.

This feature request should be closed as fixed.
