Re: Compile Swish under windows

Hi David,

thanks for your answer. The problem is that i can't compile swish-e with 
MSVC. I get a "Connot load the project due to a corrupt project 
file"-error when i try to open the src/win32/swishe.dsw project file. 
I'm using VS Studio 2003.

Any possible help?
