The Python launcher in Windows is a neat tool for running multiple versions of Python 2 and Python 3 at different times. It allows as options the ability to specify the latest version of either Python 2 or Python 3 defaulting to the 64-bit version if both exist, or a specific 32-bit or 64-bit version of Python 2 or Python 3. What is missing is the ability to specify the latest 32-bit version of Python 2 or Python 3. The equivalent syntax would be '-2-32' or '-3-32'. Is there some reason why this option has been disallowed ? If not I would like to see this logical enhancement to the Python launcher in Windows added to its functionality.
