The listed installation location is incorrect in the 02 Sep 18 release of the tutorial. It shows the default install path as C:\python36 vice C:\Program Files\python37. 

This may be related to an installer issue, as installing single-user places the program in an entirely different directory. Changing the installer to default back to C:\python37 would remove the need to differentiate Program Files (x86) for a 32-bit installer, as well as Program Files\ for the 64-bit. 

Corrected Tutorial attached reflecting change FROM C:\python36 TO C:\Program Files\Python37.
