Sometime last year someone made an effort to get Emacs compiling with MSVC 2003 and 2005. The compilation errors were fixed at that time, and Emacs was able to link with MSVC 2003, but not 2005 due to no longer shipping with a single threaded C library. The statically linked multithreaded library is missing a number of functions and globals that Emacs needs, and the dynamically linked multithreaded library causes conflicts between the Emacs malloc and the library's malloc implementations. If MSVC 2008 is again shipping a statically linked single threaded runtime, or if the statically linked multi-threaded runtime has the missing functions and globals added back in, then it might be expected to work. If the build files have been hacked to link dynamically, then problems are to be expected.
