PYTHON from Microsoft Windows Store

According to the help file;
The version supported by TCC is from

I have installed Python 3.9 from the Microsoft Windows Store, but I have several issues with using it from TCC, as outlined in the below .BTM.

Is this WAD, that is, only the version from Welcome to is supported by TCC?

TCC  27.00.21 x64   Windows 10 [Version 10.0.19042.867]

:: I have installed Python 3.9 from the Microsoft Windows Store

::A check with PATH /N shows it is already in my path, but just to be sure;
set path=C:\Users\Joe Caverly\AppData\Local\Microsoft\WindowsApps;%path%

::Already set in the dialog, but just to be sure;
option //Python=Yes

which /a python
::python is an executable extension : start /pgm C:\Users\Joe Caverly\AppData\Local\Microsoft\WindowsApps\python.exe
::python is an external : C:\Users\Joe Caverly\AppData\Local\Microsoft\WindowsApps\python.exe contains the single line;

:: This produces the error;
:: TCC: Could not load Python dll

:: This works as it should

:: Script says that the Python ActiveScript Engine is installed

:: This...
script /E Python
:: ...produces a dialog box
Failed to create an IActiveScript for the specified language.

According to Process Explorer;

Also, when I start Python;
Python 3.9.2 (tags/v3.9.2:1a79785, Feb 19 2021, 13:44:55) [MSC v.1928 64 bit (AMD64)] on win32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> the Python 3.9 that I downloaded from the Microsoft Windows Store is indeed 64-bit.

Regardless, as TCC only supports up to 3.8, does not really matter at this time.
