Hi all,

I understand that this might be out of the scope of this list but I am
hopeful that someone has some insight on it so I can move forward with this
project. This is a hail mary attempt to get this resolved.

The issue that I am seeing is that I have a script that works well locally.
I am trying to get this to work on a virtual machine (Windows Server
I the goal of this is to have the virtual machine run this automatically
for us.

When I am installing the dependancies for this script I am running into an
issue with :
pip install mysql-python

The full Traceback is rather long but I can post it if needed.

    creating build\temp.win-amd64-3.4

    error: command '"c:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio
10.0\VC\BIN\amd64\cl.exe"' failed with exit status 2

Any ideas on how to resolve this?
I've already asked to have a linux virtual machine spun up for us but I'd
love to hear what you think.
