I'm trying to build pywin32 ( on Vista 64 (AMD64) with VS 2005.
I'm stucked right at the beginning of the process with this error :
File "C:\Python25\lib\distutils\msvccompiler.py", line 616, in get_msvc_paths % (self.__root, self.__version))
AttributeError: my_compiler instance has no attribute '_MSVCCompiler__root'
I did install the windows server 2003 platform SDK (AMD64) and set both DISTUTILS_USE_SDK +  MSSdk as advertised. Still no succcess.
Any ideas what could go wrong ? 
Thank you
