Python 3.x (32-bit)


Package test results have failed.

This package was approved as a trusted package on 6/27/2016.

Python 3.x is a programming language that lets you work more quickly and integrate your systems more effectively. You can learn to use Python 3.x and see almost immediate gains in productivity and lower maintenance costs.


This package installs the latest stable version of Python 3.x. It will install to Python 3.x to $PSScriptRoot, not in the default installation directory. We think that’s more convenient.

If you want a 64-bit Python 3.x on 64-bit systems, install the python3 package instead. You can also install both packages. You can also install both. In that case you must manually adapt your .exe shims so that it picks the desired version when you invoke python.exe.

To install Python 3.x (32-bit), run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install python3-x86_32 --version 3.5.2

To upgrade Python 3.x (32-bit), run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade python3-x86_32 --version 3.5.2

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).
