Thanks for the information...

I have followed pyOpenSSL's Windows instructions. I
downloaded the Microsoft Visual C++ Express kit (what
a monster). I still get the same message.

I read somewhere that distutils looks at the registry
to look for the Microsoft C compiler. I know little
about distutils and I have not used Visual Studio in
ages. And I really need to get https stuff working

If this is the case, what exactly would I have to
change and what value do I use?

Thanks in advance,
