PyCharm 2016.2 added vmprof Profiler Support.
`vmprof` will not install on my Windows 7 (64 bit) platform. The error messages point to 64/32 bit problems with the compiler*.
The requirements for
vmprof state that it will only run on x86 (32 bit). That means that the compiler must be told to compile a 32 bit executable. If that's a failure in `vmprof`'s PyPi packaging then everybody else using a 64 bit Windows platform will be having the same problem.
A detailed plea for help can be found on SO.
