Ah, I'd forgotten about that.  When I first tried to run python I got an error complaining about a missing api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1.0.dll
I installed the necessary VC redistributable and it solved that problem.  So that's why I could successfully ensurepip later on.

I'm surprised the manual runtime installation was necessary.  Between windows updates and installers for other programs I should already have it installed.  Perhaps it got corrupted?  That's out of scope for this issue anyway.
