I am trying to script a Python installation on Windows, using msiexec from the windows cmd prompt. I do not want to register extensions.
I have tried all the combinations I can find on the following page: http://www.python.org/download/releases/2.5/msi/
But, no matter how I run msiexec, it seems that the msvcr90.dll in not created in the Python26 directory.
If I double click the msi installer and run through it manually, the msvcr90.dll is created.
Is there a way to run msiexec that results in msvc90.dll (and the manifest file) getting created?
This question is out of scope for python-dev; use email@example.com instead.
My guess is that you have installed "for all users" in the command line, so msvcr90.dll went into system32.
