Upgrade of Connector/Python to fails.

It cannot find python.exe in D:\Python27

I have set the path D:\Python27 in environment variables and can run it.

Previously I had uninstalled the version of Python that was in D:\Python27 and installed Anaconda version of Python instead.
That seemed to explain why the upgrade failed.

I reinstalled a new version of Python 2.7.2, 32 bit, msi from in D:\Python27 and set the path variable to D:\Python27.

I rebooted and tried again to upgrade the connector but the error remains that it still cannot find Python 2.7.2
