The express edition does neither support PGO (profile guided
optimization) nor cross compilation of 64bit binaries on 32bit
platforms. The other missing features are mostly uninteresting from the
PoV of a extension developer.
Visual C++ 2008 Express does not include OpenMP support, 64-bit
compilers, or a resource editor. The higher-end commercial editions of
Visual Studio, specifically the Professional and Team Suite editions,
have these features.
