New submission from jamesf <54740235 at qq.com>:

I am using python 2.7.2 installed via the pre-built installer package, and my SDK version is v7.1.

1) The MSSdk environment variable is not set by lastest SDK's SetEnv.cmd anymore, but distutils still check for it.

2) I have also install MSVC 2010 Express Edition, and its vcvarsall.bat
can't be found.

Off-side question:
a) Can i use different version of MSVC from which python is built for extension development ?
b) Can i use mingw compiler to develop extension for the pre-built windows binary python ?
