As has already been stated. the Python bundled with LilyPond is
sufficiently functional to handle all the Python scripts such as midi2ly,
convert-ly, lilypond-book, ...
If you find any problem with any of these scripts, please send a bug report.

I guess your real problem is that you have installed the native Python for Windows package from and that LilyPond adds its own bin\ folder in front of that in the PATH. A solution to that would be add wrapper scripts around all these, just as is done in the LilyPond installation package for Linux. I remember
that there were some problems with using wrapper BAT scripts in the Windows
installation package some years ago, but if those problems only were related to
Win98, it might be worth to try a similar approach again.

It's been a while since I've had much to do with LilyPond, but it seems that the installer is STILL fiddling with the registry in terms of python.

What I would like to see:
1. Could the "call registry_python" line in the lilypond.nsh (or whatever) file used for generating the installer be disabled or made optional. 2. If number 1 isn't an option, could an installer 'without' this step be put out? 3. If number 1 isn't an option, at least provide just a zipped archive of all the files that are supposed to be installed by the installer so that I don't have to reset my python install every time I do this.

LilyPond's bundled python is useless (unless something has changed in the past 6 months), so I don't see why it is still bundled.
