I didn't use the VS2008 build 'cause it is much slower then MinGW build.
On all my tests with several models in GMPL, the MinGW version take
less than a half of VS2008 version time...

I didn't use ODBC. But after your point i've build glpk with ODBC support
from MinGW - and make a successful connect to an ms excel database!
See attacahed odbc.mod and odbc.xls (need to create an odbc database
linked to xls file in control panel).
The suggested MinGW files to build GLPK are attached too.

A note: i've tested some models with CSV tables. CSV, as a table, is more
comprehensible data format to human read than ".dat" files. But the usage of
memory make me return to .dat files - something like 0.6 Mb using ".dat"
jump to more than 6.0 Mb using CSV, with the same data... So, a point: the
ODBC consume a lot of memory too?

I'll do it soon. I'm actually translating the basic guide to English
[some Brazilian speaker interested in help my bad English? =)] and
trying to create a sourceforge project.

Ok, i've looked at it but my "expertise" in open source is minimal...
So, I'll publish the source soon, and any help about license will be
