As I reviewed the PR, I do realize how tricky this change is going to be. In addition to the three MSVC implementations in distutils, Setuptools has its own (https://github.com/pypa/setuptools/blob/master/setuptools/msvc.py).

Interestingly, that file indicates support for ARM (when describing support for MSVC 14+), so at least someone has previously embarked on this territory.

If it turns out that supporting ARM in msvc9compiler also implies adding support for MSVC 14+, I think you'll be hard-pressed to find a satisfying solution that doesn't break compatibility for many use-cases.

Thanks for investigating this issue and good luck.
