Hi guys,

Some of you may remember this thread :
This issue has been solved, the ASLR feature
was not at stake and I have been using several
variants of emacs 22.x compiled with msvc and linked
to msvcrt.dll.

I'm digging out this thread because I have been beaten
by this very feature using the most recent msvc compiler
(Microsoft (R) 32-bit C/C++ Optimizing Compiler Version 16.00.30319.01)
together with their linker
(Microsoft (R) Incremental Linker Version 10.00.30319.01)
This time, the ASLR feature is turned on _by default_
and the dumped emacs is not able to run (various function
pointers off).
Hint: use the /dynamicbase:no option to the linker.

I have been able to compile the current emacs source
tree with msvc/mscvcrt.dll (debug mode for the moment).
It just works (almost) out of the box. I have been able
to bootstrap and run the whole thing.

Best regards,
