Hi Luis,

Thanks for the reply.  I too use VC6 but have been unable to get the 
project/compiler settings into a workable state.

I agree that the best way forward with Windows platforms is to use a 
MinGW build environment/sandbox. This will at least allow the community 
to get away from the disruptive commercial profiteering of Microsoft.

So yes I am looking for a MinGW sandbox so that I can contribute to the 
1.9.1 one-click installer.

Many thanks

John Leake
