Well according to dependency walker 2.6 python.exe depends explicitly on msvcr90,
2.5/2.4 depends on msvcr71 and 2.3 depends on msvcrt version 7.0.
When I run the setup.py script for the pyds which we build every day
2.6 uses c:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\BIN\cl.exe
2.5 uses C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\Vc7\bin\cl.exe
2.4 uses C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\Vc7\bin\cl.exe
2.3 uses C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VC98\BIN\cl.exe
I'm not exactly sure what VC98 is, but I think it's vs6.
So yes you're right VS8 is nowhere, they skipped a number. Anyhow, that still
doesn't explain why you're getting this message.
