It's pretty clear that I will need a windows environment to debug this. I
have windows 7 running in a virtual machine, and have downloaded the vsc9
express compiler and isos. Do I need to burn those guys to a disk in order
to install or is there some windows magic that will let me install them
directly from the isos? That done, I assume I can just download python 2.7
for windows, clone the repository, and do the usual python setup.py install
thing. Anything I need to be wary about, any pointers?
