The list of supported compilers on the system is returned by CUDACCompilers and information about what is supported and what is not is found in the documentation under http://reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/CUDALink/tutorial/Setup.html#43715449 The best bet currently is to install the visual studio 9.0 trial which lasts 90 days (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx? FamilyID=83c3a1ec-ed72-4a79-8961-25635db0192b&displaylang=en) . You may also want to look at www.dreamspark.com which gives you access to the full VisualStudio 9.0 software if you meet dreamspark requirements.
