Reproduce code:

C:\Documents and Settings\TheGeekLord>pecl install runkit-beta
downloading runkit-0.9.tgz ...
Starting to download runkit-0.9.tgz (49,807 bytes)
.............done: 49,807 bytes
14 source files, building
running: msdev runkit.dsp /MAKE "runkit - Release"
ERROR: Did not understand the completion status returned from msdev.exe.

pecl command does not support sources installation on windows, even if you have a VC compiler installed.

Also, it is not a PHP bug, please add a feature request in the pear installer bugs tracker system.

Why does it look for a windows compiler if its not supported? seriously
