I would like to know if it's possible to run Python 2.7.9 with ArcGIS 10.3.1 (which ships with 2.7.8).
The reason I need to use 2.7.9 is I have a couple of other Python tasks that run that use 'requests' for accessing https:// sites. 2.7.9 is a pre-requisite for requests to work with my https: sites of choice.
I did try installing 2.7.9 alongside my ArcGIS 10.3.1 install on my last PC, but that was a spectacular failure. I've upgraded my PC (now on a corporate image) so I'm very wary of trying to do the same again, lest I incur the wrath of our IT support people or have to re-image the machine.
I'm sure this is possible, I'm just wondering if anyone here has actually done it before!
