On python 3.3-x64 and python 3.4-x64, if you try to compile C code it cannot find the compiler. You should be able to fix this for everyone by setting some paths correctly. I'm going to try and do so for my builds now, but it would be fantastic if you could simply fix this for everyone instead. It should be fixable by setting the %VS90COMNTOOLS% environment variable to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\Tools\ or an equivalent directory.

    The problem is with setuptools. If you could please upgrade your version of setuptools in your images, that would be great.
