Your answer put me on the right track.


This works:
- downloading mingw
- downloading and extracting the tarfile the tar file
- python setup.py build --compiler=mingw32
- python setup.py install


In order to directly use pip / easy_install

I created the file %USERPROFILE%\pydistutils.cfg
with following two contents:
[build]
compiler=mingw32


and added mingw to my search path.

now in can directly type
pip install psyco



Thanks again
