If you install the Windows SDK 7.0 (which includes MSVC9) and Windows SDK 7.1 (which includes the platform toolset files for MSVC9 - toolsets were invented later than the 7.0 release) then you should be able to build from the command line or any version of Visual Studio from 2010 onwards.

I suspected this, but hadn't brought it up because I hadn't looked
into it in depth.  This sounds good though!  The SDKs are supported
quite a bit longer than VS versions, aren't they?
