0x80070643 error while installing Python 3.6


I'm actually using Python for an audio steganography project but I have some troubles. I searched this error code on the forum, but I found things about SQL installations and not Python.

I'm trying to re-install Python 3.6.5 after an uninstall, because of a bug with pip.

I installed Python 2.7, Python 3.6.5, Python with VS 2017, before uninstall it because it wasn't working.

However, when I'm runing the installer as an administrator, hit "customize installation", tick everything excpet "balblalblabal (this requires VS 2015 or later)", and click on "install", it tells me that : capture 1 capture 2.

I realy need Python to work and I'm now stuck ...

If anybody here could help me, it would be nice ! Thanks all, maleik.

PS : I have the log for you :*

I installed python from Microsoft store after facing this problem and it magically got installed without any error as it may have directly been installed. I don't know but try if it eorks for you too.

I found this in the log file which you have attached. Try cleaning the registry with CC cleaner and give it a try. If it still doesn't work, try installing python with web installer Python Web Installed 3.6.5.

I also faced the similar issue. What the trick worked for me is I installed it for the individual user (as earlier installation was for the all users). So earlier if one has installed it for the all users then install it for the specific user and vice versa.

I know this is not the resolution of the error faced. However, this approach will install Python which is the main motive to achieve.
