[New-bugs-announce] Py_Initialize: can't initialize sys standard streams

Hi All,

After installing python-3.1.2.msi I'm not able to run to python.exe at 
all because it gives me the following error message:

> Fatal Python error: Py_Initialize: can't initialize sys standard streams
> LookupError: unknown encoding: cp720
> This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an 
> unusual way.
> Please contact the application's support team for more information.

*How I can fix this issue?*


    * I'm using WinXp SP3 32Bit
    * I uninstalled python-2.6.3 before installing python-3.1.2.msi

Best Regards
