I haven't had time to play with it but just quickly going through
the code it seems pretty clean :) but only sparsely documented so
it's hard for me to figure out what the purpose of each variable
or function is. It would be helpful to document them.

For example, in configure.wsf, the non-trivial function configure()
seems pretty important but there's no comment above it explaining
what it does. OTOH, the next function down, removeFile(), looks
trivial but it does have a comment describing its effects.

I would like to see a comment at the top of each function with
a description of each of its arguments as well as a description
of the function's effects. More inline documentation would also
be welcome.

Btw., from the .config files it looks like we're using the link
command directly to link. Shouldn't we be using the compiler to
do this instead (that's what MSDN recommends, anyway).

Let's fix these before committing the changes.

Okay, that would be good. It would be good to fix these before
committing these changes, as well, so the commit don't introduce
any regressions.

Oh, one last thing. Could you please add the usual ASF license
notices (without the Rogue Wave copyright, obviously :) to all
the files?
