No. This is the first time in several years that this was reported,
and chances that this gets fixed in the upcoming years are very low,
unless a patch gets contributed. (IOW, I couldn't care less about
implementing it myself, and find installers annoying that ask too
many questions).

In any case, try installing with

msiexec /i <pyxy.msi> 'ProgramMenuFolder=C:\Documents and Settings\All
Users\StartMenu\Programs\Programming'

or some such.

Martin
