The installer dialog mentions Python will be installed in something like $USERPROFILE\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python37-32 while at the same time suggesting it will be made available for all users through the "Install launcher for all users (recommended)". This is confusing -- if the package is to be made available for everybody, it shouldn't be installed somewhere under the profile folder of whomever is installing it, normally other people can't even access this folder at all.
It should be installed in %Program Files(x86)%, unless it is a private installation indeed (the "Install launcher for all users" is unchecked).
Is this an omission of sorts? Is one expected to correct this themselves, during installation -- I don't see where one would even specify the installation folder?
Armen, do you understand that the py.exe launcher is a separate program from 3.7 python.exe and that it is a *multiversion* launcher and that only one copy of the program is needed on the system regardless of how many users have how many pythons installed and that it is best if the one copy is the latest possible version?
