I'm using the scripts/configuration available here: https://packaging.python.org/en/latest/appveyor.html

In order to test my project [quamash](https://ci.appveyor.com/project/harvimt/quamash/)

I'm getting output that looks like this:

Installing Python 3.4.1 for 32 bit architecture to C:\Python34-x86-PySide
Downloading python-3.4.1.msi from https://www.python.org/ftp/python/3.4.1\python-3.4.1.msi

Python 3.4.1 (32) installation complete
True
Installing pip...
Executing: C:\Python34-x86-PySide\python.exe C:\get-pip.py
Start-Process : This command cannot be run due to the error: The system cannot
find the file specified.

so it downloads the MSI and seems to install it correctly, to the correct TARGETDIR and yet the file C:\Python34-x86-PySide\python.exe does not appear to exist.

Any help is appreciated.

    Try running dir C:\Python34-x86-PySide to see what's in there.

    dir : Cannot find path 'C:\Python34-x86-PySide' because it does not exist.

    so the directory isn't even being created even though msiexec seems to be working?

    Should I try installing Python to somwhere other than C:\?

    No, installing to C:\ shouldn't be a problem. I think the issue is that Python 3.4.1 is already installed on build workers: http://www.appveyor.com/docs/installed-software

    I guess it's installed doesn't support upgrades, so existing one should be uninstalled first.

    Oh I actually can just use the pre-installed ones then.
    That'll speed up the builds.
