Re: swishex setup

Yes, I am starting to wonder about windows too.  Anyway, I think I am going
to start from scratch and try the aspexec component suggested earlier in
this thread.

Anyway, just for shits and giggles, if I compile the swish-e source on
windows am I only suppose to build based upon the files in the win32
directory or are those there just supposed to be added in addition to the
other files?

Ok, I'm confused. says:

  The source code is based on SwishLib 2.0.5.

I just downloaded 2.0.5 and built it and I don't see the library.  I can't
remember when Jose added the library to swish, so I'm a bit confused that
swishex is based on the swish-e library in version 2.0.5.

Sometimes it's easier to start over.

Thanks to David Norris, current versions of Swish-e take a lot less work
to build on Windows.  See the src/win32 directory.

This is the kind of stuff that made me switch to Linux for development. ;)
