I just discovered the "bug" which prevents bdist_wininst from installing data files and scripts. bdist_wininst.py:109: root_dir = install.install_lib
I noticed this comment in the source: # XXX hack! Our archive MUST be relative to sys.prefix # XXX What about .install_data, .install_scripts, ...?
So what about data and scripts? Why dont they get in the archive?
