Thanks for the reports.

Note that the release notes and one of the screens in the Windows installer
specifically mention that this version does not do the installation into the
path. You can just take the Lib/ and pyds/ contents and move them into your
path. The reason is that I have to take the time to learn how to do that and
I want to be sure I have it right before screwing up everyone's registry. Or
worse, *my* registry.
