I need to install Python 2.5 for compatibility with Google App engine. I tried the .msi install, it appeared to run, but never created the directory.
From this page: http://www.python.org/download/releases/2.5/ I don't understand why they advertise a Itanium and AMD version, but not a regular Windows 64-bit version - or am I missing it?
Do I really need to download "python-2.5.tgz"?
Update: I ran the AMD64 version, and same problem. I tried to install to c:\Python25, and the directory does not exist after the install. A voice in my head said "Run as Admin", but that option seems to be available on .exe's but not .msi's. After the supposed install, I can see Python in Control Panel - Programs and Features, and can unintsall it.
Update 2 note: I added this second issue as a new question here: Python install puts all files/libs in c: root directory (Windows 7 64-bit)
