What installer did you use, the MinGW or MSVC one?

The MinGW "installer" (actually two .7z archives) is "complete" in the sense
that it contains many precompiled packages but also the compilers and build
tools needed to install binary packages.

The MSVC version also bundles many precompiled packages but doesn't have the
compilers and build tools bundled. You'd have to install MS VisualC++
Express yourself (2.2 GB on disk) and before compiling set up the relevant
environment variables. AFAIK all this is carefully explained in the
accompanying README.
