Hello All,

I was hoping I could get some help with this issue with getting Cython
to work. Earlier I had an issue that said "unable to find
vcvarsall.bat" and it turns out there is an active bug report that
covers that issue (I have a 64 bit windows system). I still hadn't
installed 3.1.2, so I did that tonight and now I have the issue below.
Any thoughts on what I am doing wrong?
