Windows: How do I copy a custom build of Python into a directorystructure matching an MSI install?

    I've got a build of Python (3.3) on my Windows PC. Everything is
    built, I believe (core, all modules, HTML help, etc). I want to
    "install" it on my PC (because tools like virtualenv expect a standard
    install layout, and the checkout basically isn't).

    I tried using Tools/msi/msi.py to build an installer, but it's making
    lots of assumptions and it's just becoming a pain (it's started asking
    me for certificates, and I need cabarc.exe). So I'm giving up on that
    approach, and just want to move the files into the right places.

    I can probably just copy stuff around till it works. I might even be
    able to decipher msi.py and work out how the installer lays things
    out. But I'm lazy, and I'm hoping that someone already knows and can
    tell me, or point me to some documentation that I've missed. In
    return, I'm willing to share the script I write to do the copying :)

    Can anyone help?
    Thanks,
    Paul.
