Question: Installing Maple 15 without MSVC

Maple 15

I just downloaded Maple 15 and am trying to install on a 64-bit Windows 7 machine.


About halfway through the installation, there is a step where you are either supposed to supply the path to a batch file that will supply the environment variables that will locate Microsoft Visual C compiler, or supply them later as an option. The instructions say that Maple has a default batch file that will do this, but when that option is chosen, nothing shows up in the options dialogue  to locate that batch file, and I have no idea where to find it.

Furthermore, I don't have MS Visual C compiler (or any other C compiler) installed!

So, does that mean the Maple 15 won't work?

How do I get past this step?
