Hi Team,

I have a 64 bit system with Windows 801 Pro OS. I tried to install Python
3.6.1 from the below link :

It automatically downloaded that 32 bit Python application and tried to
launch IDLE (32 bit). I could not launch IDLE and it gave me an error
saying DLL file missing (attached snapshot). I have downloaded the DLL file
and also installed Microsoft C++ redistributable 2015.(After following
steps on you-tube to fix such DLL issues).

I am still unable to launch IDLE . Could you please let me know if the
issue is because of the 32 bit version of Python on my 64 bit laptop ?
Because the DLL file can not be an issue as i have already fixed it.
