How to install an older version of python

All the answers here are outdated since doesn’t host installers for older versions of Python anymore, only source code.
And building Python on Windows is not really a walk in the park…

My solution: Pyenv.

It’s crossplatform (Linux, MacOS, Windows: where it’s called pyenv-win), and you can with it automatically install among a very large list of Python versions.

There aren’t ALL python versions existing but the list is already very big.

Installation pf pyenv is quite easy if you use chocolatey.


pyenv install --list : all the versions that you can install.

and then:

pyenv install 3.9.0 for example.
