After installing python 3.8.1 64-bit, on Windows 10 64-bit version 1909, the system needs to be rebooted to validate all settings in the registry. Otherwise will cause a lot of exceptions, like Path not found etc.

Can you show some of these errors?

Certainly any existing console windows (cmd/PowerShell) will not have their PATH variables updated - that's by design - but there should not be anything else in Python 3.8 that requires a reboot.
