The <newline> should have been \ , the keyboard I am using sucks and
places the backslash below Enter vs. above like I am used to.  I just
didn't catch that when posting.

I really don't know why I always change the directory, I've just always
installed Python on MS Windows into C:\Python.  No practical reason, I
do the same with other programs.

I'm thinking this is a local issue.  I came in today and used the same
MSI installer as before and there were no problems.

I'm looking through the local logs to see if there has been any change
on this system in the past day or two right now.
