Thanks for all your responses,

Unfortunately I don't know the specifics of how to get the compilers and 
OS. I am only in charge to find out if Python-Dev has made already the work.

I suspect you get the OS and compilers from the MSDN Subscriber program.

I will certainly let you know of our experience if/when we decide to 
compile Python on x86_64. It might not be before a while though, so 
probably someone else will be able to report before us.

Thanks again,
