Hi,


Thanks. Ill go see if I can still get my hands on a copy of Visual C++ 2010
Express, then. Do you recommend building a 32 or 64 bit version ? Also, the
site doesnt seem to mention any specific version for libxml2/libxslt1,
zlib, or curl ? Can I just grab the 'latest' win32 binaries ?

Thanks,


- Maarten
