New submission from Amaury Forgeot d'Arc <amauryfa at gmail.com>:

>From an old post on python-dev:
2010/08/04 Paul Kippes:
> For the most part, the information at
> http://www.python.org/download/releases/2.4/msi/ assisted me with
> automating a 2.7 installation on Windows XP.  The following initial
> attempt, however, failed to provide a working python installation.
> (Messages are either "The system cannot execute the specified
> program." or "This application has failed to start because the
> application configuration is incorrect.  Reinstalling the application
> may fix this problem.")
> msiexec /qb /i python-2.7.msi ALLUSERS=1 ADDLOCAL=Extensions
> After looking through Tools/msi/msi.py, I was able to automate a
> minimal and working Python installation with this adjustment:
> ADDLOCAL=Extensions,SharedCRT
> Since the only reference I could find to the above web page was when
> the MSI installer was first announced
> (http://www.python.org/download/releases/2.4.2), the installer options
> may have changed since then.
> Would you check if my change is what you intended and perhaps migrate
> the web page of the 2.4 release note to 2.7?
> Thanks!
