Bug Description

The Windows shortcut does not work if the python interpreter was installed in a directory containing space. e.g. "C:\Program Files\Python26\python.exe" This can be fixed by changing the shortcut target from:
"C:\Program Files\DreamPie\dreampie.exe" --hide-console-window C:\Program Files\Python26\python.exe
to:
"C:\Program Files\DreamPie\dreampie.exe" --hide-console-window "C:\Program Files\Python26\python.exe"

However the installer should really just use quotes in the first place.
