[vbox-dev] Difficulty of Distributing 3rd party Windows apps based on VBoxPython

Currently Distributing Windows apps based on VBoxPython is difficult,
due to the need of whole stack of python for both 32- and 64-bit

This is esp. a problem, where we need modules.

Now we must ship a lot in our (GNS3) installer:
1. python 32-bit
2. pyQt 32-bit
3. pyWin 32-bit
4. python 64-bit
5. pyQt 64-bit
6. pyWin 64-bit

If I were to drop use of VBoxPython, but rather move to VBoxManage, we
would need only python 32-bit for all Windows platforms.
Another problem is VBoxSVC bug.#9239.

Is there a way to use VBoxPython from Python 32-bit on Windows 64-bit ?
