Steps as follows:

  1. Download and install Visual Studio C++ 2008 Express Edition
    (do not install SQL)
  2. Install Python 2.7.8 - Select the correct MSI for your architecture
  3. Download (Don't use Internet Explorer it will mangle the file; use Firefox to download.)
  4. Open an Administrator command prompt and run "c:\Python27\python.exe"
  5. From the same admin prompt, run "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\Tools\vsvars32.bat" (for 32bit machines... or for 64bit machines, run "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\Tools\vsvars64.bat"
