I have now played a bit around with this, and I would like to have you 
confirm that the software above is the _ONLY_ Visual Studio stuff 
installed on your machine?

The reason for this is that I have Visual Studio C++ Express, Platform 
Server 2003 SDK R2 (the latest I could find), and MASM installed on my 
XP box, and I cannot get a runnable deploy/.../jre/java.exe

If I run first the "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Platform SDK for Windows 
Server 2003 R2\SetEnv.cmd" /XP32 command and then the
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\vcvarsall.bat" I can 
build all of classlib, but invoking deploy\jdk\jre\bin\java gives me the 
dreaded "Cannot find MSVCR8.DLL" dialogue box.

I tried looking around on the net for information how to fix this, and 
changing -MD to -MT did not change anything.   All this with manifests 
and dll is very strange to me so I'm giving up on that for the moment.

If I run the R2\SetEnv.cmd command only (and not the vcvarsall.bat) the 
compilation fails at the first call to "lib" which cannot find the 
mscrt.dll (spelling?) library.

I am very confident that you have it running, so I just need to figure 
out how to get to your configuration :)

comforting linux environment :)
