If it's just a matter of building and testing it you don't need any MSDN
subscription, you just need Visual Studio Express which is free (as in
free beer...). I don't know if it allows you to build an installer

I won't reply to the other part of the message since I haven't asked for
(nor received) any MSDN subscription :)
