> Visual Studio 2013 Professional works fine under Windows 7 SP1 here.

Ok, good to know. But is it correct that the free version of VS 2013 (community) requires Windows 8.1 or newer? It's not cool to require to upgrade Windows to being able to freely compile Python.

My MSDN account is probably outdated, I don't think that I have access to the Professional version.

Would it be possible to build Python with the light Windows SDK which basically only includes the C compiler and the CRT?
