Whoops. Yeah, the instruction are for using MSVC 7.1, which is what
2.4 is build with. 2.3.x is built with MSVC 6.x. That's no longer even
commercially available.

There may be a way to do what you want without upgrading the
python. I'm not a Windows user, but happened to note that URL in
passing, and posted it to be helpful. I'd wait until after the holiday
to see if anyone has instructions that avoid having to upgrade Python
unless you want to upgrade anyway. Doing so will require rebuilding
all your .dll extensions, though. At least - on Unix upgrading from
2.x to 2.(x+1) requires reinstalling all extensions.
