Is it intended that python30.dll and python26.dll are not longer installed in the \windows\system32 directory?
No, it's not. Please create a bug report (or, better, study the msiexec logs, and msi.py, to find out why this happens).
I might not have time to look into this before the next release candidate.
I confirm this. The following lines in msi.py seem to be the cause of the change:
#dlldir = PyDirectory(db, cab, root, srcdir, "DLLDIR", ".") #install python30.dll into root dir for now dlldir = root
They were added by r61109: " Bundle msvcr90.dll as a "private assembly". " but I don't know if simply restoring the previous value will work in every case: If the C Run-Time is installed "privately", then python26.dll must stay in c:\python26.
