New submission from Timothy Madden <terminatorul at gmail.com>:

Trying to install the release package (python 3.2.2 x86-64 .msi, 2.7.2 x86-64 .msi) without elevation fails, even if 'Install just for me' is selected in the installer options, and I have write permissions in the selected install folder.

Under the same account and conditions, other installers (Mozilla Firefox/Thunderbird, git, Beaver Debugger...) can install successfully.

Here the msiexec log file is attached, created with:
    msiexec /package C:\Users\belladrianc\Downloads\python-3.2.2.amd64.msi /l*v install-3.2.2-x64.log
