I believe you have to use VS2008 to build extensions for Python 2.7 or the
Windows 7 (not 7.1) SDK, which is based on the same VC9. Microsoft released
a special package
<https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=44266> with a
VC++ compiler for Python 2, that might be what you need. I think you may
need a very recent Python 2.7 (.9 or .10, perhaps) for distutils to find
it, though.
