[fluid-dev] Windows build

Hi, Josh and the FluidSynth community,

How are you?

Thank you for your service in providing fluidsynth.

Please forgive my ignorance.

I unpacked the 1.0.8 tarball but have been having problems compiling under 

First I tried it with VC6, which would have been preferred.  I opened the .dsw 
file and the three 'active projects' appeared, but there were no classes or 
files defined.  So, I tried manually adding the files.  Then I moved include 
files around so the compiler would find them, and copied config_win32.h to 
config.h (maybe that was wrong).  I got it so it almost compiled; the only 
thing it seemed to complain about was that 'unsigned long long' was illegal.  I 
concluded that perhaps my compiler does not support 64-bit integers.

I also have VC 2005 Express installed.  I started over and opened the .sln 
file, which vc converted.  It did not work.  It said it could not find 
windows.h .  The .dsw project still looks like it is empty when I open it.

I searched the mailing list archives and took a peek.  You guys seemed to be 
talking about modifying both source and project files.  My head is swimming.

I actually already have a fluidsynth.dll file that was distributed with another 
application, but I hadn't been able to figure out how to use it without an 
import library.  That's what prompted me to attempt to build the source.

Should I install Cygwin, or would that make things worse?  I also have Ubuntu 
(dapper drake) in another partition, but I would be even far less proficient 

Thank you in advance for any tips.

May the Lord bless you,
