Any beta and develop version of Django and django CMS, by its very nature, it’s not supported, while it still may work.

djangocms-installer assumes that
django-admin.py is installed in the same directory
as python executable, which is the standard virtualenv layout. Other installation layouts
might work, but are not officially supported.
The installer is tested on Windows 7 with Python versions 3.4.2 and 2.7.8 installed using official MSI packages available at http://python.org.
Please check that the
.py extension is associated correctly with Python interpreter:
c:\> assoc .py .py=Python.File c:\>ftype Python.File Python.File="C:\Windows\py.exe" "%1" %*
