>> Yes, I update all the time, but without python running.

FYI, I tried this just now with Python 2.7.4 running, and the
installer nicely tells you that "some files that need to be updated
are currently in use ... the following applications are using files,
please close them and click Retry ... python.exe (Process Id: 5388)".

So you can't do it while python.exe is running, but at least it
notifies you and gives you the option to retry. Good work, whoever did
this installer.
