I'm not 100% sure on the details, but I do believe the intention was
always for the Express version to be suitable.

There are probably unofficial third-party sites where you can get it,
but if you're going to go down that route, you'd do better to just
grab a third-party Numpy binary and save yourself the trouble.
It's also possible to get a different compiler and build your own
Python and extensions. But that's going to be a lot of work, too.
