Prebuild Python 3.7 package can't be used with GObjectIntrospection library on Windows due to miss of support of used MSVC compiler by distutils/ module.

sys.version returns:

3.7.6 (tags/v3.7.6:43364a7ae0, Dec 19 2019, 00:42:30) [MSC v.1916 64 bit 

so, compiler version is detected as 1916, while get_msvcr() function supports only versions up to '1600'.

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
