I get:-

C:\Users\Mark\Documents\MyPython>py -3 -V & python3 -V
Python 3.5.0b4
'python3' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

I've never had a Windows system with a 'python3' on it, so that is 
presumably something you've set up.  Hence it could be a screwed 
registry setting, but you're the only person in a position to find out :)

My fellow Pythonistas, ask not what our language can do for you, ask
what you can do for our language.
