Installing python msi on Windows Vista

Finally I’ve managed to install python on my Windows Vista!
Every time I tried to install the .msi package it was stopping work just after selecting the destination folder and I was going crazy to find a solution..
Then I managed to install it correctly using msiexec

msiexec /i python-2.4.3.msi TARGETDIR="C:\Program Files\Python24" ALLUSERS=1 /qb
  • Hi,
    Thanks a lot for sharing the Python install tip, it worked great for me too!
    What do you make of Vista? It seems really cool and flashy, but they are going to have to improve the speed a lot!
    Take care,
    Paul
