[New-bugs-announce] [issue21926] Bundle C++ compiler with Python on Windows

New submission from Ben Lucato:

I am wondering if it is at all on the roadmap to bundle a C compiler with Python on Windows, given that installing libraries with C extensions is very confusing on Windows.

For example, to install NumPy on Windows you end up either having to download the right version of Visual Studio or install it from the list of precompiled libraries at http://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/. The problem is, either of those solutions feel quite bloated and aren't easily apparent when searching for fixes online.

BTW, since this is my first issue I looked around for a guide on how to submit issues but I couldn't find one - so I hope I'm raising it right.
