I was referring to the existence of 'python3' (and 'python2').  I 
presume these are created by the ActiveState installer that you said you 
used.  There are not created by the PSF Windows installer.  It instead 
creates 'py' linked to the new launcher; 'py -2' and 'py -3' launch the 
latest available python 2 or python3.
