New submission from John Taylor:

The python-3.6.0b2-amd64.exe binary installs the 64-bit version of python, but 
the binary itself is only 32-bit.  I would like this to be a 64-bit binary so 
that Python can easily be installed on Windows Server 2016 Nano Server.  Since 
this OS version will only execute 64-bit binaries, Python can not be installed 
even with the /quiet option.

Ideally, I would like to be able to install Python with this command:

python-3.6.0b2-amd64.exe /quiet targetdir=C:\Python36
