When run with InstallAllUsers=1, the Windows installer displays (%LOCALAPPDATA%)\Programs\Python\Python35 as the installation target directory, but actually installs into the path for a system-wide installation, "%PROGRAMFILES%\Python 3.5".

Ceterum censeo: This bug could have been avoided, and would certainly have been detected in time, by using MSI as the distribution package format. Because most MSI UI will display TARGETDIR as the target directory, an accidental override (or missing override) of this path would have been obvious.
