My environment is Windows 7 64bits with VC++ 2008 Express and Python2.7.2.

I encountered same problem, I have tried all solution posted here, but non of them work.

Eventually, I add "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\bin" to my PATH and it works.

It appears that the command 

    "vcvarsall.bat" x86 & set

outputs different values depending on whether "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\bin" in PATH.
