Trying to install Python 2.7 (in particular) under Wine 1.4.1, but keep getting the "Installer has ended prematurely" error.  I've also tried with 2.6 and 3.2 and different versions of wine; same error.  Also tried with winetricks; again, same error.

I've used the msiexec command to log the output of the installer and will attach.

Thanks.

Thanks for the report, however WINE is not an environment we support.  A quick google indicates people have occasionally succeeded in getting it to install and run (for some definition of run), but it sounds like you've read about those.

If you want to work out the problem, and if it proves to be an in issue in Python and not WINE, and if the patch to fix it isn't too complex, it will be considered.  You can probably get help with this on the python-list mailing list.
