[New-bugs-announce] [issue24306] Backport py.exe to 3.4

New submission from Steve Dower:

For 3.5 32-bit installs we register in a different key to avoid collisions with 64-bit installs, but now the 3.4 launcher can't find us.

If you have installed 3.4 for all users (likely) and then install 3.5 just-for-me (also likely), then you'll continue to get the 3.4 launcher, and there's no way to avoid this because there's no option to omit it.

I think we should backport the launcher to 3.4 so that the next 3.4 release will be able to also work with 3.5.
