Try to build pbs in windows 7 but failed

#1

Hi, Experts

recently I try to build pbs in windows 7 refer to this website(https://pbspro.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/PBSPro/pages/68878445/Building+PBS+Professional+Under+Windows) but failed.

I think the important thing is I can not download two tools, like VC++ 2008 Express edition and SDK 7.0, so I use vs 2008 professional and sdk 7.1 as a replacement.

Here are some of the error messages I encountered.
building python:
