Which alternatives to Python IDLE on Windows exist that can run Selenium?

Hi there!

I have an issue preparing an installation of Python/IDLE in one of my client's team computers. Basically, I prepared a couple of scrappers using Python and Selenium. The packages being used on my scripts are selenium, openpyxl, and python-docx.
However, I can't even get to installing the packages on that machine, because one I execute the Python installer from the website (3.6.x), the insteller won't. I tried using admin rights, disabling antivirus, I checked the correct processor architecture, so I give up trying to install the officitial distirbution in that machine. In other machines I don't have this problem.

So I was wondering if you could recommend other Python distributions for windows that can enable me to run my scripts using the mentioned package? I saw some alternatives such as PyCharm, but I am not sure if that will help.

Can someone confident recommend some for this case?

Thank you so much!
Any help is greatly appreciate it.

What browser are you using? Perhaps an extension is blocking the EXE downloads. Can you try a different browser?
See if the tips here apply.

You need to be more specific as to the errors you are receiving.
Are you perhaps trying to install a 64-bit python onto a 32-bit operating system?

There is no error nor pop ups, or whatsoever. I just double click and nothing happens. I checked the task manager to see if the process launches but nothing.
I did install the correct bit version of Python( that's what I tried to meant when I said  I checked the correct processor architecture).

Hi there, Flabio

I revisited the computer with the issue, and I was able to notice a "blocked" message in the download status, in chrome's lower bar.
Do you know why it gets blocked?
