Re: How to make py2.5 distutil to use VC2005?

This problem have puzzled me for a long time. I usually use
python2.5 in Windows, while VC2005 is installed.
However python25.lib is compiled by VC2003. When I use disutil to
build some C extensions, it complaints that
there is no VC2003.
Well, IMO, the format of binary files generated by VC2003 and
VC2005 is compatible in most cases. What
should I do to workaround this error? I mean, disable distutil
complaints and use VC2005 to build C extensions.
I have google-ed some discussion related on this topic. It seems that
it's real possible!
Thank you in advance.
It's possible but ill-advised. The free mingw32 compiler can build
Python extensions just fine. I'm using it all the time to build Python
2.5 extensions for Windows.

In the future Python 2.6 and 3.0 are build with my VS 2008 system and
extensions can be build with the free express version, too.
