Yeah. But as far as I saw you managed to make it work. :-)

I believe we can safely change the paths so that $(root) will point to

There should be only one "set PATH". I try to see what is wrong.

I understood. I'm talking about the same. In the standard setup VC 7.1
all required settings are set by vcvars32.bat. The VC + PSDK setup is
different from the standard one only in INCLUDE, LIB and PATH settings
that are set by setenv.cmd.

I think we will do it in the same way - when a user selects PSDK-based
built INCLUDE, LIB and PATH settings will be updated accordingly. So
when the actions block:

actions ...
cl.exe ...

will invoke the right compiler executable from PSDK.

Noted as well.
