[New-bugs-announce] [issue11034] Build problem on Windows with MSVC++ Express 2008

New submission from Eli Bendersky <eliben at gmail.com>:

On a clean checkout of py3k, I try to open PCBuild/pcbuild.sln with my MSVC++ Express 2008. When opening, a message box pops saying:

  Solution folders are not supported in this version of the application.
  Solution folder "Solution Items" will be displayed as unavailable.

I go on building following instructions (F7, leaving the default Debug win32 configuration). I get a bunch of LNK1181 errors:

  27> LINK : fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input file '.\python32_d.lib'

When I try to build the pythoncore project only, I get:

  1>c1 : fatal error C1083: Cannot open source file: 'D:\eli\python-py3k-trunk\PCbuild\Win32-temp-Debug\pythoncore\\getbuildinfo2.c': No such file or directory

Maybe there's some problem with the make_buildinfo call in the pre-build event?
