Dossy has been doing win32 builds using mingw on Windows 2003. The only
Windows-specific code at the moment is in plugins/win32, but there are
also Windows-specific includes where needed.

I don't see this as a great problem. A while ago we had a win32
directory with a msvc++ (VC8) project file and some other things (I
think the code that became Gnash was initially developed on Windows),
but it was removed because it was out of date. It can be retrieved if
it's of any help.

We do our best to use only standard C++, and where system functions are
necessary we use compatibility headers or ifdefs, so I dare to guess
that the code should build with msvc++ without massive adjustment. The
main barrier to people doing in the past has been having to build some
dependencies natively as well, but it sounds like you don't have
problems with that.


Free Flash, use Gnash
