After upgrading Python 2.7.16 to 2.7.17 using the Windows x86 MSI installer, the new Python still reports itself as version 2.7.16:

Python 2.7.16 (v2.7.16:413a49145e, Mar  4 2019, 01:30:55) [MSC v.1500 32 bit (Intel)] on win32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import sys; sys.version_info
sys.version_info(major=2, minor=7, micro=16, releaselevel='final', serial=0)

The python.exe file is dated Oct. 19, but the python27.dll is dated Mar. 4, so doesn't seem to have been updated. Repairing or removing and reinstalling doesn't make any difference, so the old dll seems to be part of the new installation.
