IMO Chris should not waste even a single moment of his time on VC++ 6.5.

I'd really like to see asio progress to the point where Chris can write a
full proposal for TR2. That is a lot of work to do between now and the
October deadline. That work is a far more useful expenditure of Chis'
effort, IMO.

Download VC++ 8.0 Express edition. It is free. It is highly C++ standards
compliant. The IDE is also much improved compared to 6.5. Time to move on.
