We have a network site-packages directory where we can install packages in one place to be available to several users without them having to require installing things like this on each machine.

However, the installer does not give the choice of which site-packages directory to use.

Feature request: Can the installation path please be manually editable so that we can override the installation directory?

Many thanks,
Matt

    pywin32 uses the standard bdist_wininst installer that ships with Python, so it is the distutils component of python itself which needs the feature request - check bugs.python.org and I expect you will find it already listed.
