Python 3.4 and 2.7 installation no Script folder and no pip installed

  pip, python, python-2.7, python-3.x

I was doing a fresh installation for Python 2.7.9 and 3.4.3 on Win7 X64 today, and I found that there is no Script folder in Python27 and Python34 folder as first child level folder, but there is one in Tools. However, I couldn’t find pip within that Script folder, although pip should be installed with Python by default. The other I was doing the same installation for my other PC and laptop, there was Script folder (as first level child folder in Python27 and Python34) containing pip. So what is going on? how to install pip and maybe other useful scripts this way?

[EDIT] I tried python -m ensurepip in Python34. I got the following errors:

[EDIT] The problem is due to multiple null Registry keys in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE that make read_windows_registry() in mimetypes.py searches failed. Here is the post that leads to the solution:
