I used to build classlib successfully on WinXP with completely free 
environment, that is MS VS.NET 2005 Express, MS Platform SDK Server 2003 R2 
and NASM from Cygwin (there is no free MASM with license which allows OSS 
development, it can be found for local experiments on quite many sites).

Overall the impression is that neither classlib nor drlvm are really ready to 
be built with VS.NET 2005. It has too much new stuff incompatible with older 

You can try to use my instructions in [1]. The NASM port of assembly can be 
found in [2]. To set initial MS development environment I changed c:
\cygwin\cygwin.bat like this:

@echo off
rem call "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\vcvarsall.bat" x86
call "c:\Program Files\Microsoft Platform SDK for Windows Server 2003 
R2\SetEnv.Cmd" /XP32
chdir C:\cygwin\bin
bash --login -i
