Hello Paul,

Building with Microsoft compilers works well, but you need to know the magic invocation. It's either msvc (but that's for the OLD release, 6 or 7 - don't remember) or vc8, vc9, vc10 and vc11.

The workflow becomes (vc10):

.Open the command prompt with vc environment set (or invoke the vcvars batch files from a "virgin" prompt)
.build.bat vc10

Should work...
