I am installing
python 3.5.0a3 first time on
windows 8.1 64 bit and at the starting of installation, it just says "Setup failed".
Here is the log file.
Got the same error after lot of research i found the below thing...It works like a charm..100% worked for me
First...Make sure to check the setup package for your system that is X86 or x64, download packages based on the system before you proceed, otherwise the hack wont work. The below is explained for x64 bit windows 8.1 system with a 64 bit Python setup package use the below mentioned setup name(.exe file) in Step1: and search in google for downloading the Python setup
if the following error comes while installing Python 3.5.0 Setup in windows 8.1 64 bit Operating Sys- Error 0x80240017: Failed to configure per-machine MSU package
Start CMD as Admin, after that
Step1: ~YourFilePath/python-3.5.0-amd64.exe /quiet InstallAllUsers=1 PrependPath=1 Include_test=0
~YourFilePath stands for the location of the python-3.5.0-amd64.exe file in your PC Example: E:\Softwares\python-3.5.0-amd64.exe
now after executing the Step2: the setup will run without any errors..... Cool....
The above mentioned steps should work or else If you find any difficulties please visit here which explains the process in detail. Good Luck...
