Good now.

Little note:  Visual Studio 2010 users cannot convert our .dsp files.
That's not true, I convert them.

I went earlier back, so I did a .dsp/GUI build with no issues. 

Build with SVN revision 1736328.

Running looks also fine sofar.





Glad to hear, thanks for testing.  I've updated the commit log message
to more clearly explain the intent and avoid future confusion;

+Going forwards, keep win32 build in svn once a tree is stable.
+Visual Studio 2010 users cannot convert our .dsp files, and
+ddk toolchain users couldn't either.
+
+Applies the same logic as r1100294 on the 2.2.x branch.

Until the cmake build schema is entirely mature, these files
are needed for command-line builds of the 2.4 tree, and are
expected to change very little until the EOL of 2.4 branch.
-The actual .dsp files are entirely unusable for any shipping
-version of MSVC/Visual Studio, while the .mak exports of these
-projects are usable on any flavor of the MS build environment.
+
+The .dsp source files are not directly usable for any shipping
+version of MSVC/Visual Studio (post-Visual Studio 97 release),
+while the .mak exports of these projects are usable on any flavor
+of the MS nmake build environment.  The .dsp source files are
+retained for those users wishing to import these projects into
+the modern vcproj/sln file format.


Hope that is more clear, further edit suggestions are welcome.


Cheers,


Bill
