Yes - you don't need to set a compiler environment - it should "just work".

It means that pythonwin will not be able to be built, but that's not really
a deal-killer - although it might be for the build process! It will
probably be necessary to comment that project out from setup.py to allow the
rest of the projects to build. MFC and ATL only come with the full version

Try explicitly putting the full path to the python 2.6 python.exe on the

on Python 2.5 and earlier, you will need to manually install the most recent
"Platform SDK"; the ones with the older compilers are too old)
