Thanks for reply, Phil!

That`s correct, i`ve checked - all is working for PyQT for Python 2.6
and 3.0. This bug is only in installer for Python 2.5.
I`m using your installer inside mine (my app is based on PyQT), so how
I can fix this bug myself (maybe I can tell installer somehow where
Python lies)?

Regards, Mark.
