I bumped into this error trying to install fabric. One of the installation steps is compiling pycrypto.
After looking into C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\bin\vcvars32.bat I saw:

so I run:
set VS90COMNTOOLS=C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\Tools 
directly before pip install fabric and it compiled successfully. Still need to see if it works.
