Subject Re: how to build Harmony on Windows (with minimum of commercial soft)
Date Wed, 22 Mar 2006 15:13:14 GMT
I've downloaded masm32 from masm32.com it has ml.exe and some other things
that I have previosly found in MSFT (I seem could save hundreds Mb of traffic)

Now I need Delayimp.lib :)

It is referenced from native-src/win.IA32/port/makefile

Thoughts?

Thanks,
Mikhail
