When installing Python (3.4.3 or 2.7.9) from an EFS encrypted installer file, the installation proceeds normally through the target selection and feature selection, but then immediately reports "/!\ The system cannot open the device or file specified," and aborts the installation with "The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package. This may indicate a problem with the package. The error code is 2755."

Other MSI products install fine when the MSI is encrypted (pandoc, MongoDB), so there appears to be something unique about the Python installer that's failing when the Trusted Installer cannot read the MSI itself. Decrypting the MSI before installing works around the issue.

Environment: Windows 8.1 64-bit with Python 64-bit
