Default visual studio disk usage?

Howdy -- apparently feeling masochistic I've thought to make another attempt at getting into C++ and coding VST's with iPlug2, now that the new version is out.

I'm up against the ridiculous disk space requirements of visual studio, though (see here). I have like 1GB free on my C drive (40GB partition), and things are already pretty streamlined (e.g. no system restore points, all serious data on external drives, etc.) So, freeing up like 5-10GB is going to be painful, or even impossible.

If I want to compile windows VSTs I need to use visual studio, right? There are no alternatives?
