Seems like `--user-access-control=auto` option [1] introduced in Python 2.6 for to bdist_wininst has no effect on Vista. 

1. Get a Vista.
2. `hg clone`
3. Add
4. `python bdist_wininst --user-access-control=auto`
5. Execute wget-0.6.win32.exe
6. Watch the error
Access is denied.
CreateFile (C:\Python27\Scripts\
7. Python is always installed for "All users" on Vista

Can't repeat right now. Please close with issue8870 as a superseder if nothing happens in the next two weeks.
