Hi

When I build windows thing, I usually do it from MSYS allowing me to use makefiles.

However, this project has not provided me with a Makefile, and requires me to use project files.

I have a *.dsp and a *.dsw file which are telling me to "export a makefile" then use "nmake on the generated makefile"

My questions ...

1. How do I export a Makefile from a Windows project file?
2. Where can I get nmake?

Thanks for your help

Mike

Can I do #1 one without visual studio?

Or at least with a free download?
