Installer can't detect Python

Hi. I'm new to this forum but I'll try to be as clear as possible.

I'm trying to install MySQL on my company's lab computer which runs Windows XP 32-bit. During the installation, however, the python connector cannot install because the installer thinks I don't have python installed on my machine, even though I do. Also note that Windows knows I have python because when I type "python" in cmd, the python shell runs just fine.

I did install Python with the option "install for all users", yet, in the windows registry, Python appears under "current user", not in "local machine", and I think that might be the problem.

I'm scared of modifying windows registry myself and reinstalling python is not an option because of all the add-ons others have installed that I don't want to mess with.

Does anyone know of a safe solution to get the MySQL installer to detect the presence of python?
