I want to directly copy python as a portable version.
But the pip always point to the place where it installed,
So I am asking pip use relative to found site-packages under win32.

I'm not certain exactly what is being asked for here so could the originator please clarify their needs?  I also don't really know who "owns" this hence the changes to the nosy list.

Do you mean pip.exe? Does running 'python.exe -m pip install ...' work for you?

In that case, this should be reported to the setuptools project, since they are responsible for creating the pip.exe launcher when pip is installed.
