ChannelFailures: VerificationError("importing 'C:\\\\Python27\\\\lib\\\\site-packages\\\\cryptography\\\\_Cryptography_c
ffi_48bbf0ebx93c91939.pyd': DLL load failed: %1 is not a valid Win32 application.",)

These error messages are solved with this install:

If you have a 32-bit version of python, that install will move the correct DLLs to your system32 folder.
