   Yup, I'm pretty sure by now (based on reading the docs, not trying it 
out though).

   Virtualenv allows you to set up different environments, each of them 
having a separate Python folder structure and each possibly connected to 
a separate Python interpreter executable. However, it does not solve the 
problem of getting those separate Python interpreter executables 
installed in the first place, which is the problem I was attacking. :-)

   Still playing around with my multiple installations setup here. Will 
let you know how it goes...

   So far, one important thing I noticed is that you need to run all 
your installations 'for the current user only', or otherwise it moves at 
least one DLL file (python24.dll) into a Windows system folder and then 
the next installation deletes it from there, and overwrites it with its 
own. :-( But I can live with that... :-)

   Best regards,
