Subject Re: how to build Harmony on Windows (with minimum of commercial soft)

I think it should be possible to solve this by using the __asm keyword, 
because the inline assembler is integrated in the compiler. This is just 
an idea, I don't know how much trouble could come with this, as it would 
require rewriting/reorganizing .asm files into .c ones.
