I wasn't clear enough, I was referring to your 'pip' install. But since 
this idents the 3.7 as 32 bit, I wonder if there is a 64 bit version 
there too. Yes, there are 3 of each, and I suspect you need the x86-64 
versions.

Or I could be full of it, the last windows install I allowed here was XP, 
and when I found its drivers couldn't run the radio in an HP lappy I had 
bought for a road machine, the drive got formatted and mandrake 
installed, which at least tried to run the radio. So other than 
configuring friends networking on more recent windows installs, I have 
essentially zero windows expertise. Windows is a disease I try very hard 
to stay away from.

So I'll bow out and let someone more knowledgable step in.
