Just bumped into this issue when installing gevent 1.0b2 on Vista 64bit using pip. I think it would be worth to mention that although I'm not quite new to Python and in the past I already investigated issue with distutils not finding vcvarsall.bat (http://stackoverflow.com/a/5122521/95735), I didn't remember about DISTUTILS_USE_SDK environment variable. What I'm trying to say is that there are probably more people like me, having Visual Studio 2008 Express + Windows SDK installed but not knowing distutils. After seeing that Windows SDK installs 64bit compiler into VC\bin folder of Visual Studio's installation I thought that Python would pick it up automatically the same way it does with non Express versions of Visual Studio.
