[vbox-dev] Building 4.3.22 on Windows

When trying to build VirtualBox 4.3.22 (x86 version) under Windows, I get
the following error:

windres: unknown format type `D:/virtualbox/4.3.22/include'
windres: supported formats: rc res coff

I am using the setup described here


VirtualBox 4.3.20 builds without any problem. It seems that 4.3.22 is
relying on a newer version of windres. The page


however was not updated and still contains a link to binutils-2.13 with the
old version
of windres. When I switched to binutils-2.19, the build succeeded. But I
wonder if it is ok to use binutils-2.19 for building the recompiler?
(in the past I already had problems with a newer version of gcc building a
non-working recompiler)

Thanks & best regards,
