In case the executable is corrupt, clear your browser cache and
download the 32-bit version again:

Try to run the installer from an elevated command prompt. If it fails
to run, check again for log files in your %TEMP% directory, which
typically expands to "C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Temp".

If the installer is still not running -- not even enough to create a
single log file -- then apparently something is configured incorrectly
or missing on your computer that's causing it to fail hard. I'd have
to run it under a debugger to find the cause.

Anyway, if you're stuck with ancient 3.4, you can at least install
"pywin32-221.win32-py3.4.exe" from the old SourceForge repo:
