Visual C++ 2005 for 8.3/8.4 or 2008 for 9.0. You can use the free
"Express" versions, but you'll need the Windows SDK as well with those
(also free). Setup info is in the docs - note that it can be a little
painful to get the SDK fully registered with 2005, but it seems to be
completely automatic with 2008.
