This attempts to address a possible issue raised by @wroy in !824 (merged) where if one does not specify
PYTHON in the NMake command line for preparing the build from a GIT checkout, or when building introspection or when creating the pkg-config file upon "install", a stub
python.exe (which won't work unless Python is installed from the Microsoft Store) will be run instead of the one that the user has in
In cases when
PYTHON=xxx is not specified in the NMake command line and a stub
python.exe is found in one's
%LOCALAPPDATA%, display a message that advises one to specify
PYTHON=<path_to_real_python_interpreter> if the build fails.
python.exe was initially meant for Microsoft to point one to install a Microsoft Store version of Python, which sadly can get into the way for us.
With blessings, thank you!
