If you run the OSGeo shell, Python will work without having to set the
path, and this is not the case in the system experiencing the problem
in the subject.

As written in my previous email, Python and all the other
stuff were not installed at all by the OSGeo4W installer, and I do not
understand why, therefore I decided to send this email to the list.

After running the installer, there is not C:\Osgeo4w\apps\python27,
but apps contains just a msvcrt directory with a single file inside

If I try the advanced installation, all the Python libraries are
marked as "Not Available".
