Yes I have compiled it with VC2010 and Activestate Perl 5.10.1 Build 1007.
It works fine I have worked with it for a couple of days now.
I have tested with Windows XP, Windows 7 and Windows 2003 all working fine.

I use reload all the time it worked OK for most modules but some modules
(at least the ones that use "use base 'modulename';" ) will have problems.
The good thing is that on Windows 7-64bit and 2008R2-64bit, the start and
stop of apache is much faster then on the old 32 bit systems (Win2003, XP)
