I'm sure it does :) I'm more concerned about *your* apps not working when
the user, or a "helpful" friend, uninstalls this Python thing that they
don't use. I'm very interested to know why you don't see this as a
significant problem with a relatively easy solution?

Yes, but apps written in jscript and C# tend not to rely on something
external, out of their control, that the user may remove. Even for apps
written in C which rely on the C runtime library, the advice is still to
ship a private copy of that CRT. OTOH, I guess some .NET apps *do* fall
into this category...

I think that should be quite easy to do - I'll volunteer for this one (but
not for a few days)

I'm not familiar with that.

So to be clear, you don't desire any changes here?
BTW - isn't there also a "\Program Files" requirement...?
