In a (misguided) effort to debug the linum-mode problem that I
reported yesterday (bug
10164), I attempted to build Emacs on my Windows 7 Pro SP1
64-bit machine using MSVC; specifically using the Windows SDK 7.1
The initial "nmake bootstrap" still does not work. The compilation of ntlib.c fails with
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\VC\INCLUDE\time.h(270) : error C2090: function returns array
I realize now that it was a waste of time to try to build an MSVC version of Emacs when the linum-mode bug was apparently caused by an issue with gcc. But back on 11/27 you asked someone to try a MSVC build, so here you go.
Thank you for the work that you all do.
