1. Create installer with bdist_wininst with python version 2.5
2. Install it to 2.6 Python. 
3. The post installer message is not shown to user in the installer window.
4. Remove the installation from add/remove programs.
5. Messages coming from removing are not shown to the user.

This same happens if the installer is created with python 2.6 and it is
installed to 2.5 Python. See attached project, which can be used to
create the installer which contains post installer script.

I just hope I've got this right. :)

The distutils bdist_wininst command has been removed in Python 3.10: see bpo-42802.
