Can't install python-3.7.7 on win 7

When I try to install python-3.7.7 on my windows 7 it says: one or more issues caused the setup to fail, please fix this issue...etc.

And below that it says that it needs windows 7 service pack 1. Problem is I already have it. It shows up in windows edition.

 

I even tried to reinstall it, thinking that the file I got from microsoft might give me the ability to repair or that I'm missing something. But I can't install it because I already have it.

 

Below is the logfile which has: KB2533623 update is required to continue. I'm no expert but I though to actually just download "KB2533623" When I try to run it it says "The update is not applicable to your computer" So I even tried looking online for a fix for that but even that did not work.

 

So I really have no idea how to proceed.

 

Just in case it might help. I had an old Python installation. I tried to reinstall it but no avail, and typing python in the command line showed nothing so it was not installed.

All this so I can have python, 3.4 or more, so I can get pycharm working. Anyway what can I do now to get a python up and running?

 

And as a backup plan is there any other way to get Python 3+ working on my pc?

 

Edit:
Thanks to "colonel_mortis" suggestion I was able to actually get it to work.

I don't mean to be rude.
But did you even read my post?
I tried to install that update and it won't install.
I tried looking for a fix for installing that update and even that did not work.
So again I tried it.

I'm trying to install the latest version of visual studio now.
I'll see if that works

You could install an up to date operating system.

 

Or run one in a virtual machine.

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

Sorry, you can update to windows 10, if your windows 7 isn't pyrated then there won't be any watermark and it should be pre-activated, atleast that is how it went for me.

Also try running the portable version of python and see if it works

So instead of trying to solve this particular problem you want me to get another OS completely!
Also a virtual machine would be too slow for my current system

Edit: I mean another OS version which would be a hassle on the best of days.

That update looks like it should have been installed by default if you are running windows update, since it is a security update (although for some reason I can't access the security advisory info) that was released in 2011. You should be able to download the right version for your computer (either 32 or 64 bit depending on the version of Windows that you have) from https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2533623/microsoft-security-advisory-insecure-library-loading-could-allow-remot. If you have the right version, it shouldn't say that it's not applicable - it should either install it or say that you already have it.

you are choosing to use an outdated unsupported OS. that's your choice, but don't get angry at us for suggesting you use an up to date supported OS.

I actually did have python running on this windows before without changing anything else.
So this advice is basically. yes you have a problem.
Like you want to know of a good brand of coats to wear because your town is very cold.
So my suggestion is move to another town.
Problem solved.

The question was not about the "outdated unsupported OS"
The question was about how to solve a particular problem. It makes sense either to contribute to that or not answer.
I also consider it interesting that even before I starting getting Python ready to learn it, the first thing I would do in response to this problem is simply ignore it and just give up on a fix and go get a new OS. Also my PC is old, better get a new one.
I'd make the best programmer ever!
