I would also recommend using a dedicated folder for all requirements to lose dependencies on version numbers and os architecture.

For example, right now these are used in
WIX_LIB="/c/Program Files (x86)/Windows Installer XML v3.5/bin"
SEVENZIP="/c/Program Files/7-Zip/7z.exe"

If all these were, for example, in C:\BuildTools\ then WIX_LIB would not be dependent on a 64-bit specific folder and Python would not be dependent on it's version number and be simpler to change in the future.
I suggest, for the examples above, but not limited to:

This is merely a suggestion.
