New submission from Ricardo Daniel Fuentes <ricardo.daniel.fuentes at gmail.com>:


I am Admin of a Windows Server 2012 R2, I have installed successfully Python 3.9.5 (64-bit) however I cannot uninstall it, I get the error: "0x80070659 - The installation is forbidden by system policy. Contact your system administrator"

I don't have any software system policies defined on this server so this could be a Python bug.

attached the log.
