FWIW, I am now recommending that you place the Python directories on your
MSVC global include and lib paths (using View/Options/Directories).  This
makes it easier to change versions or locations of Python - simply change
the global settings once, and all the project still work.

This is the way I ship my project files - with no embedded Python etc
paths - as I can't possibly predict your system.  So setting these paths
globally also means you can update the sources without re-tweaking the

If there are wrinkles in this that I can iron out, let me know...  [although
longer term it may make sense to move to DA's tool, then I can
just ship a and the projects files are built locally.]
