Subject Re: ntwin32.mak dependency
Date Tue, 24 Jan 2006 06:28:45 GMT
Hi,  Tor

Personally I think you are right that we need commercial version of VC, 
but AFAIK, the dependency is not ntwin32.mak(which is included in MS 
Platform SDK, which can be freely downloaded from MS's website), but 
some other utilities, such as the ml.exe to make .asm codes. I tried 
platform SDK, .NET SDK, and vctoolkit from MS, but all these free tools 
don't include the ml.exe. Ideas?
