I am inclined to believe.  The answer to "How do I run a Python program under Windows?" should include how to use 'py'.  'python' will not work unless the install directory has been added to the path. Of course, 'py' does not work if its installation is unchecked.

The answer also has a box with a useless link (503 Service Unavailable) to a video 'Python Development on XP' that includes adding 'python' to the path.  3.5+ do not run on xp.  This should be removed.
