It works fine for me. One way for it to fail is if you uncompilable
modules in the target directory. Currently, it invokes

  [TARGETDIR]python.exe -Wi [TARGETDIR]Lib\compileall.py -f -x
bad_coding|badsyntax|site-packages [TARGETDIR]Lib

where TARGETDIR is, well, the target directory of the installation.
You could try to run this after you installed Python without pyc
compilation, to see whether it succeeds.
