Another report from webmaster.  (I still don't have a windows machine).  Somebody tried to install 3.3, 3.4 or 3.5 and got this error.  I asked
them to try the Activestate installer.  That worked.  Thus Activestate
knows to include something that users sometimes don't have, which we
do not. We probably should analyse this and include what we are missing.

Did it fail for 3.3, 3.4 AND 3.5? Or was it not clear which version they were having trouble with?

3.5 is so different from earlier versions I'd be very surprised for this kind of failure to be the same.

Definitely 3.3 and 3.4.  I asked, got back '3.3 through the latest' so
maybe 3.5 was not the latest where he was ...

I will go ask again for 3.5 in particular.
