Why can't we use visual C++ 2010 Express with R2012a ?
I use Windows Seven 64 bits I have installed SDK 7.1 as specified in but visual C++ 2010 Express does not appear in the list provided when calling mex -setup Why isn't it listed on the link above (only professional version is present) ? Is R2012a supposed to work with VIsual C++ 2010 Express ?

32 bit or 64 bit? If 64 bit, did you install the SDK?

The SDK you installed contains all of the bits MATLAB needs to compile 64-bit binaries, and is what "mex -setup" will list. You can skip installing Visual C++ if you are only interested in supporting MATLAB -- of course, the full-features IDE of Visual C++ is useful if you develop C/C++/C# code outside of MATLAB.
Visual C++ Express only contains a 32-bit compiler, so you would need to install the SDK anyhow to get a 64-bit compiler.
