New submission from Paul Moore:

Trying to run a pyz file using the embedded distribution for 3.6.0, I get an error "Could not import runpy module".

To reproduce, see below:

>type .\__main__.py
print('Hello, world')
>zip test.pyz __main__.py
  adding: __main__.py (172 bytes security) (stored 0%)
>unzip .\python-3.6.0-embed-amd64.zip
>.\python.exe .\test.pyz
Could not import runpy module
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'runpy'

Running with the standard interpreter works fine:

>py -V
Python 3.6.0
>py .\test.pyz
Hello, world
