I run the python-3.2.1.msi, and after I select the installation directory, I get a popup that says "There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A DLL required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your support personnel or package vendor". 2.7.3, amd64, and older packages all do the exact same thing.

NVM, I solved it just this very moment. I found this topic It turns out I had to go to my Temp directory and give Full Control to the Everyone group. No idea why the MSI wouldn't have admin rights.
