Failed to execute script pyi_rth_win32comgenpy

I am on the latest update for windows 7, I have downloaded both these updates Download Windows 10 Universal C Runtime from Official Microsoft Download Center and this I have downloaded both python 2.7.14 and python 3.4.1 and still nothing, I tried googling it but people seem to only have the Failed to execute script pyi_rth_multiprocessing error but not the win32comgenpy one, I am currently running on Windows 7 SP1 and I have a HP Pro 645 G1 laptop. Also I tried to install the latest version and the one for x64bit and both do not work.

Also worth noting that this is the log details of when I run it on cmd if it’s going to be of any help

Thanks in advance

This could be helpful:


I have been on my computer for nearly 10 hours right now and literally reinstalled windows completely from scratch.
I don’t know how to thank you, man.

If you have a trouble with Windows 7 Failed to execute script pyi_rth_win32comgenpy you should update your windows 7 system by two updates: KB4474419 , KB4490628
Ели не запускается программа на Windows 7 и выдает ошибку: Failed to execute script pyi_rth_win32comgenpy
то нужно обновить систему. Нужно скачать и установить два обновления.
