Right, and I think you meant, more precisely, it's a vague statement. What is happening is that no launch icon is appearing and neither is the menu.py in the Arves tool. What I was doing was clicking on the downloaded Python file in an effort to open it.
Python 3.6.3" is not showing up. It's very frustrating. Any suggestions?
Only carefully verifying that the Python installation was successful. Which I expect you've already done.
BTW, even though Win7 can
run 64bit binaries, you might have better luck with the 32bit flavor there. Win10 should be fine with the 64bit install. (screen clips attached of my install on a Win7pro VM) 64bit in Win7 is known to have some oddities / lack of robustness.
I believe you've referred to "launch icon" a couple of times. And that might be where you and I could be starting to "talk past each other". Since this is not a native "Windows Application", there would not be such. Unzip the files to a directory/location of your choice (right click | "Extract All..."), start a console window (Start Menu | search | cmd), "cd" to the proper directory (cd c:\...\jvcprojectortools), do a "dir" command to verify unzipping was as expected, then execute "menu.py" from the command line - i.e., by typing that. If Python has been correctly/fully installed all the environment variables will have been created to auto-invoke Python when you 'execute' any Python script file.
Note: I saw a possible point of confusion when compiling the screen clips. "Console Window" is very old terminology which, although generic across several operating systems, Microsoft no longer uses. You will see either "Command Prompt", as in the attached clip, or "Windows PowerShell". (I've yet to test with PS but it should work just as well there.)
First step is to ensure Python is properly installed and working.
Then, from a console window go to where you extracted the zip file contents and verify you have the below file list.

On startup of the 'dos box' (another ancient term
) you will merely be presented with the command prompt line of text. "C:\...>"
That attached clip of the "Command Prompt" window is merely showing the successful replies from my JVC to a "ping" command.
I like to prove the VM and the JVC can talk to each other before proceeding with any next steps involving the JVC.
