Remarks with the patch:

- we need to keep the find_vcvarsall() backward compatible. e.g. define a default value for arch.

- Next, since this fix is specific to 64bt and since *any value* in arch will be used as "not 64 bits", I think the patch should be using a boolean tag instead (vs64bits=False).

- Last, we need a unit test that runs exclusively in this environment, to demonstrate that youyr fix fixes the error.

Let me know if you want to work on the patch, or I can fix it directly.
I'd prefer of course if you modify the patch ;)
