---------

- What you downloaded
python-3.5.0a4.exe (x86). This is the correct one.


- What you tried
Intalling all variants, per user, system wide as administator.


- Your system/OS details
Win 7.0 pro. I deliberatly pointed "European" Windows, because
I know by experience sometimes us-prepared software
are using "localized" dll (and other stuff)  which may lead to a
non woking app. This is not specific to Python and if
I recall correctly this already happen once, I do not
remember exactly the py version, it was.


- What went wrong eg backtraces/error messages at console
If I only kwow! Nothing visible.

It should be noted the installer windows is so small that
the install path is not completely visible!

To remove an installation, I manually and blindly deleted Python stuff
in c:\Users\<user_name>\... The "unsinstaller" is not "installed"
and not available.


I also tried to unpack the "embed" variant which is in my
understanding some kind of a portable Python, manually added
the runtime (the trio vcruntime140.dll, ...) in the installed dir.
Impossible to launch python.exe. If that matters.

I also tried the "alpha3/a3", I downloaded once. No more luck.

- etc 
Hard job to be a guinea pig.

To summarize: total black box.
