When you install Python 3.4.2 32 bit and 64 bit on the same PC, in that order, the second one you install shows a red error message on the install screen, saying "This update will replace your existing Python 3.4 installation", and proceeds to uninstall the 32-bit version before installing. This is even though the two are being installed into different directories.

This does not happen if the 64 bit install is done first (which is a huge relief, as otherwise it's not possible to install the 2 versions side by side).

The 3.4 installer is still maintained by Martin.

Steve, if this was fixed post-3.4 can we close this?
