[New-bugs-announce] [issue19351] python msi installers - silent mode

New submission from Jason Bray:

Hello, I am working in an IT group, attempting to automate our management of python. This issue applies to both Python 3.4 and Python 2.7.5 and Python 2.7.4

On a Windows machine (both 7 and 8.1 have been tested) when python msi's are installed from the command line using a quiet or passive mode, they do not appear in the "Programs and Features" panel. This leads me to believe that there are missing registry entries when installed in this mode.

When the same msi is used, but in interactive mode, everything appears to install correctly. While I am able to install and uninstall normally using the command line, this creates issues for manual uninstallation of python, as well as for managing it with automation tools like puppet.
