   Ok, looked it up on the net. It seems the current Platform SDK
actually comes with something called Visual Studio 9.0 standard compiler
tools. That includes the compiler (but without the optimizer!? :-)) and
it seems that distribution does not contain the vcvarsall.bat script.
Unfortunately this product installs itself in the same folder structure
as does the MSVC 2008 express edition. :-)

   When you install a stand-alone MSVC 2008 express edition - you get
the vcvarsall.bat file.
