I installed "WinPython-64bit-" on Windows 10. As you can see below, the included version of IDLEX depends on idlelib implementation details that have changed between 3.5 and 3.6:

    Python 3.6.0b2 (default, Oct 10 2016, 21:15:32) [MSC v.1900 64 bit (AMD64)] on win32
    Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
    >>>  import idlexlib
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
      File "C:\WinPython36\python-3.6.0b2.amd64\Lib\site-packages\idlexlib\", line 10, in <module>
        from .idlexMain import version as __version__
      File "C:\WinPython36\python-3.6.0b2.amd64\Lib\site-packages\idlexlib\", line 46, in <module>
        from idlexlib.extensionManager import extensionManager
      File "C:\WinPython36\python-3.6.0b2.amd64\Lib\site-packages\idlexlib\", line 60, in <module>
        from idlelib.configHandler import idleConf, IdleConfParser
    ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'idlelib.configHandler'

The "Unable to located" [sic] error is from the script due to the above import error.

I couldn't reproduce the crash due to python._pth. Your Windows application log should provide the DLL (module) and exception code for the crash, but a dump file would be even better. With the error reporting dialog still open, look for the crashed python.exe in the task manager details tab (the working set of the crashed process should be small -- about 100K). Right-click it and select the option to create a dump file. Zip the dump file and upload it here.
