David Linke added the comment:

Besides clarifying documentation, it may be helpful to provide a script that (temporarily) sets the path to pythonX and pythonX/scripts. A batch cmd script that does that and also changes the default Python for the launcher is here: https://gist.github.com/dalito/8356483ac2ffb2b8b468
The Python version is specified just like for the launcher: "pypath -3.4" temporarily sets the path for Python34 and Python34/scripts and "pypath" restores the previous state. The script uses the launcher to get the location of the specified Python version.

I think some of the problem above could be mitigated by including such cmd/powershell script(s).
