Dear all

I'm trying to install Zope2-2.12.0b2-py2.6-win32.egg on Windows. It's the first time I try
to install an egg, so I may have made a trivial mistake.

The installation installs some packages, then tries to install zope.security, and fails
with a missing vcvarsall.bat.

I haven't got a C compiler installed - I assumed the purpose of the Zope Windows egg was that 
I wouldn't need to compile? 

	Processing dependencies for Zope2==2.12.0b2
	Searching for zope.security

	Reading http://svn.zope.org/zope.security

Hints appreciated. Thank you and best regards,
