I found the following PEP https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0514/

According to this PEP, starting from python 2.7.11 the backward compatibility was broken, because .dll can't read from the following registry keys anymore:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Python\PythonCore\<Tag>
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\Python\PythonCore\<Tag>
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Python\PythonCore\<Tag>
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wow6432Node\Python\PythonCore\<Tag>

That means, the python27.dll (x86/x86_64) tries to reads '2.7-32' and never see old keys like '2.7'
