Hi tarek,

I can't say for sure about the only part. My experience on windows is
that there are so many possible combinations that getting it right is

But in any case, the raised exception is not helpful. I am a developer
and familiar with distutils, and I could not make any sense of the
message. If the cause cannot be determined, at least a message like
"Unexpected result while detecting MS toolchain (str(result) vs
str(interesting)" would be helpful I think.

Also, but I am not 100 % sure about this, I believe any exception raised
within distutils should be inherited from DistutilsError
