This is what I get when MSVC 2008 tries to build the _ssl module:

8>------ Build started: Project: _ssl, Configuration: Debug x64 ------
8>Performing Pre-Build Event...
8>'""' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
8>operable program or batch file.
8>Project : error PRJ0019: A tool returned an error code from "Performing Pre-Build Event..."
8>Build log was saved at "file://Z:\py3k\__svn__\PCbuild\x64-temp-Debug\_ssl\BuildLog.htm"
8>_ssl - 1 error(s), 0 warning(s)

The build log has the following contents:

Creating temporary file "C:\Users\Antoine\AppData\Local\Temp\BAT00012021242476.bat" with contents
@echo off

cd "Z:\py3k\__svn__\PCbuild\"

"" Release x64 -a

if errorlevel 1 goto VCReportError

goto VCEnd


echo Project : error PRJ0019: A tool returned an error code from "Performing Pre-Build Event..."

exit 1

Creating command line "C:\Users\Antoine\AppData\Local\Temp\BAT00012021242476.bat"

I have installed Perl and Python 2.7.

Try setting HOST_PYTHON.

> Try setting HOST_PYTHON.

It worked, thank you.
