Actually, VC++ 5.0 is still our agreed upon common denominator.  See

Anyhow, if you could set up a nightly build, you could at least report
to us when we broke the Windows build and maybe prevent us from
continuously releasing broken Windows builds.  As things stand, it see,s
like the only time anyone tries to build on Windows is after a release,
and that's when we get the bug reports.

I explaioned in another email to Larry.  Still waiting to hear more
opinions on the importance of the error check I restored.

Anybody else know about this?
