problem:

The "Select Python installation to use" dialog box for the
MySQL-python-0.9.2.win32-py2.1.exe installer shows
the following list item:

Python Version 2.1 (found in registry)

However, the corresponding 'Installation directory' text
box shows garbage text, such as: ü˙˙˙

this 'installation directory' cannot be altered, and
proceeding with install causes installer to crash.

temporary fix:

Before running MySQL-python-0.9.2.win32-py2.1.exe,
add an entry to your register base :
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Python\PythonCore\ 2.1\InstallPath], and for the 'Value data' of this default
key, provide the path where python.exe is installed at.
For example: D:\plone\Python

    I can't fix Windows problems. Maybe you could post this in
    the Help forum for future reference.
