I'm attempting to build Chicken 2.5 on Windows XP SP2 (running under Parallels on a MacBook Pro) with Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition and Microsoft Platform SDK for Windows Server 2003 R2. I was able to successfully configure Chicken using CMAKE, open the resulting project file in VC++, and start a win32 release build, but it just seems to hang for hours (with the
chicken-boot.exe process consuming 99% of the virtual processor and about 1,424 KB of memory). Any idea as to what I might be doing wrong?
I did successfully compile Chicken on the same machine within OS X in a few minutes. Alternatively, does anyone have a Windows binary that I can download? Is there a simpler way to use Chicken to produce a win32 binary?
