win32 build environment

I’m pleased to see that microsoft have made available Microsoft Visual C++ Toolkit 2003. It’s just the C compiler, include files and libraries. Just what I’d expect as standard under Linux. This finally means that I should be able to test XML::Genx under win32.

Oh. According to these instructions, I also need the Platform SDK and bits of .net too. Darn. I’ll have to download them and try again.

Hmm, there are further instructions. This is beginning to look like a hassle.
