Windows Studio 2008 Download

i.  I've seen notes, in various places to say that the Express version is
not acceptable for compiling Python packages.  Is it, in fact usable for
this purpose?

ii. The Service Pack 1 has the original studio as a prerequisite.  That is
no longer available from Microsoft.

Any advice would be welcomed.
