Exe or MSI created by
python bdist_wininst
python bdist_msi
on a Py3.5 are unable to find Py3.5 installed.
The build machine is not the same as the installation machine (destination).
Tried changing Py3.5 installation on the destination from user mode to all users, same result.

Looks like we forgot to update PC/bdist_wininst/install.c for the "3.5-32" sys.winver format. Guessing it'll find a 64-bit install just fine.

Distutils is now deprecated (see PEP 632) and all tagged issues are being closed. From now until removal, only release blocking issues will be considered for distutils.

If this issue does not relate to distutils, please remove the component and reopen it. If you believe it still requires a fix, most likely the issue should be re-reported at
