That worked, thanks.  I use pynsist to build my installers and part of my
build script is to 'pip wheel -r requirements.txt', I commented that part
out for now so it wouldn't download a new copy.  Then in the 5.14 wheel I
replaced the concrt140, mscvp140, and vcruntime140 DLLs with the versions
the the 5.13 wheel.  Built the installer, installed it with no issues and
everything seems to work. Thanks!
