Python 2.7.4 64-bit

What is Python 64-bit?

Python is a general-purpose, high-level programming language whose design philosophy emphasizes code readability. Python supports multiple programming paradigms, including object-oriented, imperative and functional programming styles. It features a fully dynamic type system and automatic memory management, similar to that of Scheme, Ruby, Perl and Tcl. Like other dynamic languages, Python is often used as a scripting language, but is also used in a wide range of non-scripting contexts. Using third-party tools, Python code can be packaged into standalone executable programs.


A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The main program executable is python.exe. The software installer includes 13 files and is usually about 15.86 MB (16,625,664 bytes).
