Look at the file:


in mod_python source code.

Its seems that it tries to get the location from registry settings but
perhaps only as starting point before putting up popup to confirm. You
could easily change the script though to not put up a popup.

In other words, you would need to create your own installer by using
build scripts in mod_python. That or somehow unpack the installer,
change the script in it and put it back together.



for building mod_python yourself.
