I'm wondering how ArcGis determines which python installation to use? We are using ArcGis Desktop 10.2 and have disabled the inprocess python, making ArcGis using one of the other installed python distributions already in the system. So there is a number of ways to find a python distribution and we're not sure which one is used by ArcGis:

 

- Check the .py file association

- Check for a PythonPath system variable

- Check the PATH variable for python.exe

- Use a registry value to point to a python dist

- Use a file containing the path to the python dist
