Well, never prior to 3.5 anyway.  That was literally one of the entire
points of requiring 3.5+ on Windows.  Python for Windows post 3.5 uses the
Universal CRT, which is forwards compatible. More information here:

I can't speak to the issue of 2.7.6 vs 2.7.3 on Linux you experienced, but
on Windows the officially supported position of the Python project is that
you can install any version of Python post 3.5 and it "just works".
