Which is available for free from Microsoft:

I ran tests using Visual Studio C# Express with this version.

The trick is starting the mpd(?) process manually and in debug mode to
keep it running (use the -d switch). You must use the same user for
starting the mpd daemon and submitting the mpi job via mpiexec (specify
the hosts you run mpd on to address the hosts you started mpd on) . I
can't give you detailed info, because I've no windows box around, but I
learned that from the Microsoft Forum, so maybe you can find the
original post.

Of course this is totally unsupported, will eat your dogs, etc. bla bla.

What you actually get with HPC Edition is a job scheduler which will do
the menial above task for you. If you are serious about MPI I'd
recommend either running linux, where cluster managers like torque/slurm
are free or buying the Windows HPC Edition.

And yes, you *may* get and MPICH2 to compile. Good luck. You
still need a cluster manager to execute your job on remote nodes.
