Another day, another program drops its support for Windows 7.

An attempt to install the program in Windows 7 will results in this:

And the log accompanies it:

[0E54:16D0][2020-10-16T12:04:17]e000: Detected Windows 7
[0E54:16D0][2020-10-16T12:04:17]e000: Windows 8.1 or later is required to continue installation

Workarounds tested: NNN4NT5 (does not work)

No need for PExe editing as Major and MinorOperatingSystem version is set to 5_1

 

Can us make it work?

 

EDIT: Attempt to run python.exe on the portable version will result in this: Seems like to make it compatible will require quite a bit of work...

NNN4NT5 doesn't work at all on NT6 OSes.

Those api-ms-win-core-* files usually are quite portable. Try copying them over from a win8.1/10 install. It may also be included in the most recent VC++ 2019 runtime.

I do not have a new windows version on hand and my install doesn't have the files installed even though I've installed it (the VC runtime).

And the installers can't be extracted either.

Don't know if this is normal or not, but this is what happens for me

I have tried the mentioned method with the latest version, 3.9.6, but unfortunately that no longer works. They must have changed something because new versions simply crash at launch. The last version i could get to work is 3.9.4, copying the proper api-ms-win-core-path-l1-1-0.dll

I was unable to modify the installer as Illen did, so i've made a custom one myself for both the 32 and 64 bit interpreters. It only includes the basic components:

Copy this DLL into the directory of Python (you must use portable/"embeddable" version) and it will work perfectly. All versions up to 3.10.1 I've tested works perfect Windows 7 x64. It works for running Blender as well. New versions of Python work perfectly fine on Windows 7 with this opensource DLL.
