Are you sure your HEAD is current? My copy of msvccompiler.py 1.67 reads

     def __init__ (self, verbose=0, dry_run=0, force=0):
         CCompiler.__init__ (self, verbose, dry_run, force)
         self.__version = get_build_version()
         if self.__version >= 7:
             self.__root = r"Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio"
             self.__macros = MacroExpander(self.__version)
             self.__root = r"Software\Microsoft\Devstudio"
         self.initialized = False

     def initialize(self):
         self.__paths = self.get_msvc_paths("path")
