Summary: Unable to Install  Python 2.4.1rc1 on windows XP SP2

Initial Comment:
First of all, YES i had everything i needed to install,
and yes i read the info on the site.

When i tried to install python-2.4.1c1.msi (or even
ActivePython-2.4.0-244-win32-ix86.msi), install "ended
prematurely because of an error".

I tried everything but, after a while i found a way to
avoid the bug.

I was installing from "F:\Docs\Varios\Sandbox".. i
moved the msi file to C:\ and then the install (both,
python and activepython) worked out perfectly.

Folders were not shared, restricted, compressed or on a
network (it was a normal local hard disk).

Any ideas on why that happened?

Thanks


PS: Sorry about the sp. mistakes. I am not very fluent
on technical english.

No, but I know how to find out. Please run, in a cmd.exe window,

msiexec /i python-2.4.1c1.msi /l*v python.log

Compress python.log with Winzip, and attach the resulting
file to this report.

As a wild guess: could it be that F: is SUBSTed?
