How to make chocolatey install python2 into custom path?

I'm installing Python 2.7.11 using Chocolatey, which installs into

C:\tools\python2
:

choco install python2 -y


Is there any way I can get Python to install into
C:\Python27
instead?

Answer

Yes, override the install arguments -

choco install python2 -y -o -ia "'/qn /norestart ALLUSERS=1 TARGETDIR=c:\Python27'"

Alternatively you can create a Python27 folder and it will install there.

Note that is determined by reading through the chocolateyInstall.ps1 script - https://chocolatey.org/packages/python2#files
