I can confirm that this does happen if you don't install as admin. I confirmed that I didn't have PYTHONHOME or PYTHONPATH set and I still got a similar error (except it was for the site module) for the python 3.4.4 installer. setting pythonhome and pythonpath to blank does make it work, but so does just installing the exe/msi as admin.

Note this error does not happen with the python 2.7 installers even if you don't install as admin.
