As expected, Python 3.9.0 cannot be installed on Windows 7. 

Running the installer displays a message clearly stating this. 

However, running the installer in passive mode (/passive) is expected to display errors that might occur. As stated in https://docs.python.org//3.9/using/windows.html#installing-without-ui

But this is not the case, nothing is displayed when launching the installer in passive mode.

I would expect the same message as in the UI.
