setup.py Choosing Older Compiler On Windows

  Hello,

  I'm porting a C++ extension module to a Windows machine that has both VC8
and VC10 installed. Unfortunately, `setup.py build` tries to build using
VC8, which fails (the extension uses C++ standard libraries that VC  didn't
used to have). Is there a way to get setup.py to use VC10 (preferably
externally, without modifying the script)?

  Thanks,

  Ami
