You can install the Python package anywhere you like. You must "teach"
Octave where Python is installed by either

 1. setting the global PATH environment variable such that "python.exe"
    can run without specifying a full directory path, or
 2. setting the environment variable PYTHON to point to the fully
    specified path to the "python.exe" executable.

I believe the former is described here:

I believe the latter is done by running:

  setenv PYTHON 'C:\some\path\to\python\bin\python.exe'

in Octave.

I don't use or have access to Windows to try or verify any of these
tips, but hopefully this helps. If you feel like something is missing
from the octsympy wiki, please add it.
