From the comments here, there seems to be a belief that this is somehow related to VC Express only.

I have hit this error when using the MS SDK (both 7.0 on Python 2.7, and 7.1 on Python 3.3 and 3.4) with DISTUTILS_USE_SDK set.

Unless I have somehow misconfigured my installation, this bug prevents me from having any means of building Python extensions using free tools for 64-bit Windows. It is possible I have misconfigured something, as I am working from various notes on the web, plus trial and error, because there is no official documentation I have found on how to set up the SDK for use with distutils in this manner.
