Does python itself (which version?) work?  I do not know if versions 
before 3.5 are expected to work on Win 10.  We developers have no way of 
testing yet, at least not on the buildbot testers.

There are no such things. Idle is python code that runs on whatever 
version of Python you have.  As far as I know, you cannot easily install 
both 32 and 64 bit versions of x.y on the same machine.
