Python issue:Unable to find vcvarsall.bat

error: Unable to find vcvarsall.bat

I'm trying to install MySql interface for python, but I got an error (mentioned below). And I know the solution: install Microsoft Visual C++. Is there any alternative solution apart from installing Microsoft Visual C++? I mean this has really hurt me; why should I install Microsoft Visual C++ just because to build this single package it's a useless and time-wasting approach from the developer's perspective. Is there any alternative solution for this issue?

Accepted Answer

You will need MSVC compiler or mingw32 to compile that, and also need MySQL Header files.

I've compiled once for MySQL1.2.3c1 for Python2.6, you could find it here.

I realize this question is over a year old. However, YOU's executables don't work for Win64 machines. I've found Christopher Gohlke's Python libraries extremely helpful: http://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/.

For MySQL-python on Win64 and Py27: http://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/49ej5jcn/MySQL-python-1.2.3.win-amd64-py2.7.exe
