The uninstaller program of the Python interpreter lacks an icon. This
looks ackward in the Add/Remove Programs list on the Windows platform.
Please add an icon for the uninstaller.

What specific release are you referring to?

As far as I know, the uninstaller has never had an icon, but it
certainly needs one. The upcoming versions of Python could be equipped
with a neat little icon. Are you willing to implement it? That would be
very nice.

I can't quite reproduce the problem. Both on "Uninstall Python" in the
start menu, and in "Add and remove programs", Windows displays an icon,
showing a computer and a cdrom, atleast on Windows XP. So where are you
missing the icon?

Oh, I guess I should have been more informative, sorry. My OS is Windows
Vista Business (64 bit) onto which I have installed the 32 bit
interpreter. And now when this 32 bit interpreter is installed on my 64
bit OS platform, I don't see the two-snakes-kind-of-like icon in the
Add/Remove Programs list; instead I see the default icon -- you know,
that squared box. The files python.exe and pythonw.exe both have that
two-snakes-kind-of-like icon, and even pressing Alt+Tab (when the
interpreter is running) displays the two-snakes-kind-of-like icon, but
this two-snakes-kind-of-like icon is not displayed in the Add/Remove
Programs list. So I find that a strange thing to be.

Anyway, this is a bug so I reported it. I really don't know why this bug
exists. This could be because of a 64 bit OS and a 32 bit interpreter
mix issue, but I doubt it.

This is probably an easy fix for you guys. I keep my fingers crossed for
this bug to be fixed. Oh, and I can make screenshots if you like.

So are you willing to fix this issue?

Would be nice if the same icon could also be the default for bdist_msi.

"Retro" could you point us to some documentation on how to fix this ?

Thanks again for the report. This is now fixed in r67449, r67450, r67451.

Marc-Andre, if you want request a change to bdist_msi, please submit a
separate report. I'm skeptical though that bdist_msi packages should use
the Python icon in ARP.

I opened #4480 for the distutils commands.
