With GGL, I use Visual C++ compiler from Visual Studio 2005 Professional.
I have also access to Visual Studio Team System 2008
and I build GGL using it from time to time.

Actually, I would expect that GGL builds fine using
Visual C++ 8.0 or later. I would not be surprised if it builds with
Visual C++ 7.1 too. However, I doubt it can compile using 7.0 or earlier.
