[New-bugs-announce] [issue7558] Python 3.1.1 installer botches upgrade when installation is not on C drive.

New submission from John Nagle <nagle at users.sourceforge.net>:
I just installed "python3.1.1.msi" on a system that had "python3.1.msi"
installed in "D:/python31". In this situation, the installer does not
ask the user for a destination directory. The installer found the old
installation in "D:/python31", removed most but not all of the files
there, and then installed the new version in "C:/python31".
I uninstalled the failed install, and reinstalled.
On a new install, the installer prompts for the destination dir, and
that works. Upgrade installs, though, are botched.
