[New-bugs-announce] [issue13276] distutils bdist_wininst created installer does not run the postinstallation script on uninstalling

New submission from francisco <frandelapena at gmail.com>:
The bug can be reproduced by running the following command to create a Windows installer for the attached module:
python setup.py bdist_wininst --install-script pis.py
I include also the installer that I have created in the dist folder.
The installer installs everything correctly and it runs the pis.py script, which simply creates a file in the USERPROFILE directory with the "Installing" string. However, when uninstalling the program from the Windows Control Panel the script is not called, what can be verified by checking that the "Uninstalling" string is not appended to the file.
I am experiencing this problem in Windows 7 64 bits, but it may be present in other platforms.
