Yes. If your Python installation is somewhere else,
point it at the "somewhere else".  It will create new
directories under the one you give it but it assumes
things like Python\Lib\site-packages and Python\DLLs

We haven't yet made it smart enough to stop and correct
you first, sadly :-)

Please let me know if it works for you...
