Building Python (2.4.x) with Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition?

I did some searches but did not find any definitive answers as to
whether or not it should be possible to build Python 2.4+ with Microsoft
Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition.

I tried it myself (have VC++ project files that work with Visual Studio
2003 .NET commercial version, just opened and closed them in vcexpress
to convert the projects) and the compilation finished without errors
(although with a bunch of deprecation warnings). But when I try to run,
python crashes on startup.

Has anyone gotten this to work?
