I suspect the place you'd need to look is near the changes I made on the 
14th and you made on the 15th.

I don't see any obvious quick changes.  What will probably need to 
happen is the script will need to glob the source directories, rather 
than filtering out the built executables from the remainder of the build

The way I'd tend to fix it would be to add a /COMPAT switch to the 
runall.wsf script which adds the necessary flags to the command line for 
the exec utility, then include that flag on the command line when 
running the runall.wsf script in the .stdcxx_runtests solution. 
However, I would rather have Farid fix it in the way he feels best, as 
he knows the Windows build infrastructure better than I do., and he'll 
be altering related parts of the scrips for the first part.
