[vbox-dev] Windows OSE compile

There is a conflict in the combining of the SDK/Visual Studio toolchain
with the WDK toolchain that presents itself, for example, with the
errors in intrin.h. These two sets of include files should basically
NEVER be combined, as therein lies madness, or at a minimum the editing
of standard include files. This is at least partially MSFTs fault for
not reconciling their mess of include files into one set that works
across their entire third-party exposed development interface, but one
also has to question the path vbox seems to have gone down as well. My
own suggestion is to abandon the VS/SDK toolchain entirely and stick
with the WDK toolchain for the entire windows build environment, as that
set of libraries and include files works from user mode down through
kernel mode, at the cost of not always current user mode windows UI
related support.

Subject: [vbox-dev] Windows OSE compile

Trying to compile the Windows OSE version seems to fail no matter which
version I try.  At least back to 2.2.4 which should still have been in
the time frame of the posted instructions.  I have read references that
I should edit intrin.h on Visual Studio 2005, but I find that hard to
believe.  Is this true? and if so do you have a working copy of this
file or patch?
