Hello Anthony,

I got this insane message, how did you solve this "problem" ?

running install
running build
running build_py
running build_ext
error: The .NET Framework SDK needs to be installed before building 
extensions for Python.

Or does anyone know why i get this message, the .net sdk is about 100Mb, 
no fun !
