Subject: [Tutor] About installing 3.2.2

Win 7, Python 3.2.1

I had downloaded python-3.2.2.amd64.msi and started the installation when I saw the attached. Does it mean that I would lose everything in the site-packages folder? Is this something even the Python newbie is supposed to know?


Dick Moores

I would think not. The message leads me to think it will update an existing Python install but not in a delete-replace manner. You could always test it by copying the directory or creating a zip of it, update, and see if the site-packages folder has been modified.
