I suspect there was a bug in visualc.hpp that causes that #error to be
generated in almost all cases with eVC++ (it's been fixed in cvs), so try
commenting out the offending #error. After that if it compiles then it'll
likely work (but try running a test program or two to make sure).
Unfortunately we've never had anyone run the tests regularly on embedded
platforms so your mileage may vary: so any feedback will be gratefully
