The correct solution to this issue now is to install the Microsoft supplied "Visual C++ Compiler for Python 2.7" package (available as a free download from MSDN). That has all the components needed to build 32 and 64-bit extensions. Your needs to use setuptools (as there is a setuptools extension to recognise this compiler package) but otherwise the process should be seamless.

Note that in spite of the name, the process should also work for Python 3.2 and 3.3, which also use VS2008 (but I haven't tested that explicitly).
