Hi, I'm unable to compile Python default (3.6) on Windows 7 with Visual Studio 2010: it requires "ucrtd.lib" which looks like a new feature of Visual Studio 2015. Please update the developer guide to be more explicit:

Current text says that VS 2010 SP1 is supported. Well, I don't have the SP1, but I don't think that ucrtd.lib comes with VS 2010 SP1 anyway.

Python 3.5 and later use Microsoft Visual Studio 2015. You can download Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 CTP 6 or newer, or you can continue to use Visual Studio 2010 SP1 until Microsoft releases the final version of Visual Studio 2015.
