this appears to be exactly the case with me, I run both the 2.3 and
2.4 branches on the same box... and I upgraded py2.4a3 to py2.4b1.
the funny thing is that when I installed Py2.4a3 some time back all
went well. this time the installer restored the last setup options
(except the setup dir... I do not use %systemdrive%\python24\) and
removed ALL file associations, including for Py2.3.4, and messed up
the overall python registry configuration! (which is quite odd....).
