The 32-bit installer either doesn't work at all or won't work with two third-party packages I use: APSW and PyWin32. The 64-bit installer does seem to work on 64-bit machines, but in my particular case I need both 32- and 64-bit versions so use Python 3.4. Hopefully the problem will be fixed before 3.4's end of life:-)

Ooops, of course you're already using the 64-bit installer. My advice is use Python 3.4 if you need to work on Windows: unlike the 3.5 installer I've never encountered a problem with the 3.4 (or 3.3) installers.
