New submission from Michael Büsch:

The bdist_wininst installer does not run the specified --install-script.

Attached is an example project foo.zip.
setup.py is invoked as follows:
py setup.py bdist_wininst --install-script foo_postinstall.py

The installer shows that it successfully ran the install script, but it did not do this. The file C:\foo.txt is not created. If I add print()s to the install script, these messages are not shown either.

I tested this on Python 3.4, 64-bit (Win7) and 32-bit (XP)
