The windows installer for Python 2.6 offers to install on c:\python26\ -
If you chose to install on c:\python\ instead, the installation will run
through and terminate succesfully, but whenever you try executing any
python program, an error message tells you that mvscr90.dll is missing.

It turns out the installer does properly install the dll in a subfolder
of c:\windows\winsxs.

If you remove python, then install on c:\python26\, it will work just fine.

Event occurred on a Dell latitude D620 laptop with 2 GB RAM and a 2 GHz
intel core duo, with Windows XP professional Service Pack 3. No python
packages were installed.
