Can you please run the Python installer with

 msiexec /i python<xy>.msi /l*v python.log

and compress and attach the resulting log file?

The same error has been reported in #7598 with Python 2.6.4.

If a reboot fixed it (3 years ago), not our bug (probably, until someone can reproduce it reliably).  Closing the issue.

Such issues are most likely caused by pending windows update that requires machine reboot. This would explain Shereef's comment in msg133158.
