That is what I'm wondering as well.

The only thing I can think of is that it asks windows update to install said KB update
but that it depends on something else that isn't installed or that the user running the
installation doesn't have the rights to install windows updates. (I suspect something
will be logged in the event viewer somewhere...?)

Or that it doesn't attempt to download it at all and that we are misinformed :P

Btw, I personally never had any issues installing Python on Windows.
