Interesting. I just had problems trying to install the 32-bit rc1
(see thread in py-dev; I think it's now "solved"). 

Here's what Windows Event Viewer said:

'''
Product: Python 3.4.0b3 -- Error 1721. There is a problem with
this Windows Installer package. A program required for this
install to complete could not be run. Contact your support
personnel or package vendor. Action: RemovePip, location:
C:\Python34\python.exe, command: -m ensurepip._uninstall 
'''

Not sure why the installers are complaining about 3.4.0b3...?

Pip seems to be figuring into these glitches, somehow...? 

(Note that both Terry and I are longtime Windows users, so likely
we're both using our own procedures which *have* worked for
years.)
