Microsoft Visual C++ Compiler for Python 3.4
I know that there is a "Microsoft Visual C++ Compiler for Python 2.7" but is there, currently or planned, a Microsoft Visual C++ Compiler for Python 3.4 or eve Microsoft Visual C++ Compiler for Python 3.x for that matter? It would be supremely beneficial if I didn't have to install a different version of visual studio on my entire lab.
Unfortunately to be able to use the extension modules provided by others you'll be forced to use the official compiler to compile Python. These are:
Visual Studio 2008 for Python 2.7. See: https://docs.python.org/2.7/using/windows.html#compiling-python-on-windows
Visual Studio 2010 for Python 3.4. See: https://docs.python.org/3.4/using/windows.html#compiling-python-on-windows
Alternatively, you can use MinGw to compile extensions in a way that won't depend on others.
This allows you to have one compiler to build your extensions for both versions of Python, Python 2.x and Python 3.x.
