PTVS 2.0 Alpha Errors on VirtualENV Creation 4 Python 3.3


I attempted to create a project in Python 3.3. That worked fine but when I tried to create a Virtual Environment I received an error.
Creating virtual environment...
C:\Python\Python33\python.exe: No module named virtualenv
Error in creating virtual environment: 1
I figured that since Python 3.3 comes with Pyvenv I didn't need to take the additional steps to install virtualenv. I take it from this error that PTVS does not currently support this. Is there a way to configure PTVS to use pyvenv instead of virtualenv?

Covered by and even though this one has a better description, the other one has external links.

Not in the alpha, but it will certainly be there for the next release. For now, we specifically require virtualenv. (In hindsight, we should have put a label in that dialog making this requirement explicit.)

Yeah I figured it was something like that. In the next release something like that would be awesome. Thanks for the info.
