We need it to fix balrog submissions.

I'm going to install Python 2.7.3 into d:\mozilla-build\python27 if there are no strong objections.
Attached patch Python 2.7 OPSI package (obsolete) — Splinter Review
* The package installs python 2.7.3 without any other modules (like pywin32)
* The package is supposed to be used by build and test slaves
* It uses network installation type (msiexec /a), so there is no registry entries (easier to uninstall)
* The package hasn't been tested yet (but tested running "msiexec ...")

Do we need anything else to be installed as a part of this package? I know, that buildbot requires pywin32, twisted, simplejson, etc, but probably having them as separate packages would be better (easier to upgrade). Concerns, comments?

Python 2.7 OPSI package

As an install, this looks fine.

Are we planning to make this the default?

I had to add ALLUSERS=1 to prevent the following error when installing the package as SYSTEM user (which probably doesn't have user directories and the corresponding registry entries):
DEBUG: Error 2103:  Could not resolve path for shell folder 26.
Not to many changes here.

1) I had to use /i instead of /a because it didn't work as expected on winxp
2) Added ALLUSERS=1 to prevent installation failures
3) unins script uses msiexec because of 1)

I tested the OPSI package (installation and uninstallation) on a builder and an XP test machine.

The package is being deploying to the *build* slaves only. I'll check the status tomorrow.
Filed Bug 750889 - please take a snapshot of win32-ix-ref
deployment is going fine for builders. talos-r3-xp-* are in progress now. Win7 needs manual installation.

W7 machines will be updated manually by running these commands:

wget http://dev-stage01.build.sjc1.mozilla.com/pub/mozilla.org/mozilla/libraries/win32/python-2.7.3.msi

msiexec /i python-2.7.3.msi /quiet /norestart  /log python27_install.log TARGETDIR=c:\mozilla-build\python27 ALLUSERS=1
For win7 talos slaves I had to drop ALLUSERS=1 and install as cltbld:

wget http://dev-stage01.build.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/mozilla/libraries/win32/python-2.7.3.msi

msiexec /i python-2.7.3.msi /quiet /norestart  /log python27_install.log TARGETDIR=c:\mozilla-build\python27
w64-ix:

# ssh Administrator@slave

c:\mozilla-build\wget\wget.exe http://dev-stage01.build.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/mozilla/libraries/win32/python-2.7.3.msi

msiexec /i python-2.7.3.msi /quiet /norestart  /log python27_install.log TARGETDIR=c:\mozilla-build\python27 ALLUSERS=1
I just talked to Armen. It turns out that we need to deploy w64-ix files using GPO.

@MaRu:

What's the procedure to deploy this package? It sounds like we may need a transformation file to pass TARGETDIR.
Blocks: 755742
All done here. I filed bug 755742 to track GPO deployment of the package.
