No (see the doc link I referenced) - paths are absolute, or relative to the _pth file. So "." means "in the same place as the pth file".

I don't think there's a way with _pth files to get the "add the location of the executed script to the front of sys.path" behaviour. It's not really a good idea for an embedded interpreter (which is the _pth file intended use case) as it makes it a bit too easy to run code from unexpected locations.

In an embedded application, you could of course add sys.path entries in your C code. Maybe WinPython could do that too?
