The installer byte-compiles the Python code during install, for which it
uses the Python it picks up from the Windows registry. I don't know all
that much about bdist_wininst, but I think that just making the install
path editable is going to work. Where do you get your Python for
byte-compiling for then, just scan all subdirs for a python.exe file?

The installer that bdist_wininst creates simply isn't made for using
non-default Pythons it looks like.

A simple shortcut is to copy the site-packages/numpy/ dir from C:/ to D:/.

That's OK indeed.
