I want to move the Python27 directory to a different location. How do I tell ArcGIS how to find the new place?
Is the distribution from ESRI a strict superset of the standard distribution? ie, as long as I don't have anything in site-packages that I'll miss, can I just throw away my existing Python27 directory that was download from the python site?
What is the highest release number within 2.7 that is valid for ArcGIS?
