I just installed Python 3.9.0b5 using the provided beta installer python-3.9.0b5-amd64 on a Windows7, 64bit machine.

I did the installation without the Py Launcher update, into the folder "c:\python39"

The installer finished without problem.

Running "cmd.exe", navigating to "c:\python39" and then running python.exe results in an error message popup which tells me in
German system language that the "api-ms-win-core-path-l1-1-0.dll" is missing on the computer. I googled for it and it seems that this dll is not a part of Windows 7.


python.exe - Systemfehler
Das Programm kann nicht gestartet werden, da api-ms-win-core-path-l1-1-0.dll auf dem Computer fehlt. Installieren Sie das Programm erneut, um das Problem zu beheben.
