That'd be me. I used Visual Studio 6.0 (yes, I know it's old :=)

I just refreshed the tip of the trunk, and it builds cleanly with VS
6.0. I don't believe 6.0 is supported by MS any more. It used to ship
with the MSDN (I haven't used MSDN in a year, so I couldn't tell you if
it's still there - probably not).

I don't have a recent version of Visual Studio .NET to test this on. I
have the discs, I just haven't installed it.

WRT the corruption reported by visual studio, check the line-endings. I
suspect the .dsp and .dsw files may have plain LF endings, rather than
CRLF. I could be wrong, though.
