Which issue exactly are you talking about ? When python is installed
for one user (when installed for all users, the C runtime is installed
in the SxS) ?

This sounds like a very bad idea: if packages start doing that, there
will quickly be clashes between extensions.

You would need to describe the exact scenario which is failing: how
python is installed, how you build numpy, what is not working with
which message, etc...
