When python platform is installed in the "Program Files" location on Windows platform, auto detect doesn't find the
python platform. Manual adding it works but doing an auto detect will remove it from the list.
Confirmed on Mac too. Auto Detect does not find Python if spaces in path. Also, manually adding is OK but auto detect
removes from the list.
