I tried that, and it seemed to work well, although it took a while.

One glitch:  I'm pretty sure I selected "install only for me" in the
first screen.  I wanted to go back to check, but it doesn't seem
possible to go back to the first screen.  Anyway, the Python DLL ended
up in a system directory, and that's "the glitch".  I expected/wanted
it to end up in my Python directory.
