That would be Visual C++ 2008. The good news is that the Express

Yes. In fact, I have 3 versions in our build box, VC6, 2003 and 2008.
distutils is usually smart enough to figure out the right compiler to
use, and when it doesn't, you just have to run 'vsvars32.bat' from the
appropriate installed version.

As long as you provide instructions, I would be willing to do this.

Yes, I don't see a reason for this to be any different.
