My version of MSVC only compiles to 32bit (it's free after all).
This only makes me wish more that CLANG C++ support was complete and it could be used to compile all Python modules on the fly in Windows. :)

Oh, wait, I need a Fortran compiler?  What are my options?

I only need Numpy -- which from what I am seeing may be possible to do?
As for going back to 32bit, well that would be kind of a mess.  I've have to figure out what to do with my current Python install, then I'd have to re-install the other Python modules I need, etc....  It's possible, I guess if there is no other option.

Here's what I am currently using:
Vista 64bit
Python 2.6.4 64bit
so, I need one for Python 2.6.4 64bit
