Nice to hear that :)

There are two issues: 1. Why has Visual Studio not created this key when 
it has been installed? 2. Why is oowintool used, although you has the 
configure parameter --with-cl-home?
For the latter Oliver might have an idea.

You should not worry about the registry key. I have got it 
automatically, so I think it is right to have it. Hopefully your 
building will run now.

When you need further help, or task suggestions, ask again. Please use a 
new thread then, this one is rather long already.

Kind regards
