I have a VS 2008 license too. That is not a problem. I use MSVC 6
because that is still what we use for our "official" binaries due to
the Apache dependency. I also use the binaries I build in Subclipse
and if I compile with a newer version than I have to deal with
distributing the new MSVCRT DLL's which I do not want to have to deal
with.
