Python.exe cannot run for missing  api-ms-win-core-path-l1-1.0.dll ,

api-ms-win-core-path-l1-1-0.dll is for only Windows 8?

Sorry, Windows 7 is no longer supported in Python 3.9. You'll need to update, ideally to Windows 10, but if you want to stay on Windows 8.1 then I believe that one's supported until Python 3.10.

Can we get this mentioned somewhere? Eg, doesn't mention anything about minimum versions. also has prominent notices like "Note that Python 3.8.3rc1 cannot be used on Windows XP or earlier." but nothing for 3.9

(This threw me for some time - I still have a win7 VM I used for testing and figured there was something broken in the VM before finding this)

Ɓukasz can add a note to the release page, I believe.
