Did you have a previous install? It looks like it is registered but somehow you don't have the ability to replace it.

If you're comfortable with using regedit.exe, you could try renaming SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{9d1b786e-0fd4-4386-abc1-4b920ab32da9} (probably under HKEY_CURRENT_USER, but running as admin all the time can make installers choose HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE instead). Renaming will get it out of the way so you can try installing again, but you can bring it back if something else breaks.

If you're not comfortable, let me know and I'll make a Powershell script for you can that do it.

@steve, I tried to install which gave me access denied error and when i checked it was there in program and features. Let's check on that when I successfully uninstall the two instances already there (3.7.0b5 and 3.6.5)

@Steve, I did find the registry under local user, {9d1b786e-0fd4-4386-abc1-4b920ab32da9}, but it lot of registries in it. what and how do i rename it to?

Just anything. I often put "deleteme" in as a reminder. Once you've got it all working you can delete it, but for now you just want the installer to be able to make a key with that name.

@steve, it didn't work, see the snapshot attached for reference

Hmm... okay, we might just need to delete it completely then.

@steve, deleting it did work and it was out of the system but installation failed again, see the logs attached
msg319085 - (view) Author: Steve Dower (steve.dower) * (Python committer) Date: 2018-06-08 16:55
Okay, I guess there's some configuration (or corruption) on your machine that's interfering here. I've seen similar things before on IT-managed workstations.

Can you try deselecting the "Install launcher for all users" option and seeing if that helps? It should be fully per-user then, which avoids most of these problems.

An addition to the record, as Google returns this issue as one of the top results for "python install \"Error 0x80070005: Failed to register bundle.\"":

In my case, I had removed access for all users on the HKCU/RunOnce key and was getting this error.  The purpose of removing access to that key is so Windows doesn't automatically relaunch all running programs on restart, as the setting to disable it does not exist in some earlier windows 10 patches.


After restoring permission to my user, the package installed successfully. 
 During installation, it was observed that the path to a temporary copy of the installer executable was added as a string value under the RunOnce key, purpose unknown.  This string value was removed by the time installation was completed.

While I disallowed access to this key manually, I suspect that some anti* software may also block access.

Thanks for the extra info! I think the registration is put in there during install in case the PC restarts part way through, but it doesn't have to hang around after install is complete. Your explanation makes sense, and is a good reason to disable antivirus software while installing.
