Indeed, according to http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hs24szh9.aspx the
express version explicitly lacks devenv.com.  According to
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/xee0c8y7(VS.80).aspx , this utility
"provides for the delivery of output via standard system streams, such as
stdout and stderr, and determines the proper I/O redirection when capturing
output, such as to a .txt file."

Sounds like things may still build with devenv.exe but you won't be able to
stream the output somewhere?
