An alternative solution: Give them a copy of "portable python". It is
a Python enviroment that can be used by just copying its file in a
single directory (to run python from a pendrive for example), with the
need to install any program
It even work in Linux with wine (but you seldon need that since most
modern Linux distros has a uptodate Python setup).
