New submission from David Barlow:

Version 2.5.1.
I'm trying to install Python on 32bit Vista Business. When I run the 
MSI file it proceeds smoothly (well, apart from offering to install 
to "c:\python..." instead of "c:\program files\python..."), and then 
starts the install. It then tells me that I have to close down Explorer 
(i.e. the shell!), and Nokia PC Suite 6.84.10.3. I could cope with the 
latter, but I'm definitely not prepared to exit explorer. This seems a 
bug/oversight in the installer. Is there any wat round it?
