Thanks, great.

One more little detail: everything is alphabetically ordered,
which makes checking easy, except for str\str.dsp, which should
be moved up two places.

With the new snapshot, I didn't see these anymore, so it seems
this is fixed.

This problem is still there. Saving the files as app1.dsp, and
so on, seems to work.

It does. Thanks!

I have been progressing quite a bit, but some problems remain.
First, there are several warnings, which in good Amaya tradition
it would be great to eliminate:
(again, all of the text translated back from Japanese)

D:\Amaya-compile\Amaya\thotlib\dialogue\AmayaWindow.cpp(62) : warning C4273: 'wxEVT_AMAYA_ACTION_EVENT' : Contradiction in DLL linkeage. Assuming this is exported by the DLL.

D:\Amaya-compile\Amaya\thotlib\view\changeabsbox.c(3249) : warning C4101: 'pMainAb' : Local variable not used at all.

D:\Amaya-compile\Amaya\thotlib\image\picture.c(503) : warning C4305: '=' : Conversion from 'const double' to 'float' reduced precision.

D:\Amaya-compile\Amaya\thotlib\image\picture.c(505) : warning C4305: '=' : Conversion from 'const double' to 'float' reduced precision.

D:\Amaya-compile\Amaya\thotlib\base\wxAmayaSocketEvent.cpp(155) : warning C4018: '==' : Trying to compare signed and unsigned value.

D:\Amaya-compile\Amaya\thotlib\base\wxAmayaSocketEvent.cpp(158) : warning C4018: '==' : Trying to compare signed and unsigned value.

D:\Amaya-compile\Amaya\thotlib\base\wxAmayaSocketEvent.cpp(161) : warning C4018: '==' : Trying to compare signed and unsigned value.

d:\amaya-compile\libwww\library\src\htcache.c(2090) : warning C4018: '!=' : Trying to compare signed and unsigned value.

d:\amaya-compile\libwww\library\src\htevtlst.c(780) : warning C4018: '<=' : Trying to compare signed and unsigned value.

d:\amaya-compile\libwww\library\src\htdemux.c(88) : warning C4761: Formal parameter and actual argument base types differ. Adjusting the actual argument to the parameter type.

d:\amaya-compile\libwww\library\src\htfwrite.c(56) : warning C4018: '!=' : Trying to compare signed and unsigned value.

The next problem is the following:
A long list of errors was related to the fact that a bunch of files
(actually the whole folder) were missing in the idn module of libwww
(libwww/modules/idn). These files all are from idnkit
(http://www.nic.ad.jp/ja/idn/idnkit/download/). I only knew because
it was me who added IDN (Internationalized Domain Name) support to
Amaya a few years ago. Apparently, the Windows makefiles still keep
that information (great!), but the actual files got lost. It would
be great if this functionality could be fully integrated into Amaya;
if you need some help, please tell me.

The next problem I got into was when compiling libwww/modules/idn/util.c,
the compiler reported a lot of errors in various .h files (starting
with winnt.h) that were part of the compiler's installation
(among them a fatal error that it can't handle a certain level
of union nesting). I got around this by #undef WIN32 at the start
of libwww/modules/idn/util.c. I don not remember such problems
the last time I used idnkit some years ago.

After that, there were a few more warnings:
d:\amaya-compile\amaya\thotlib\view\changeabsbox.c(3249) : warning C4101: local variable 'pMainAb' never used
d:\amaya-compile\amaya\thotlib\dialogue\fontconfig.c(403) : warning C4101: local variable 'fname1' never used
d:\amaya-compile\amaya\thotlib\dialogue\fontconfig.c(404) : warning C4101: local variable 'word1' never used

And then one fatal error:
d:\amaya-compile\wxwidgets\src\jpeg\jpeglib.h(24) : fatal error C1083: cannot open include file '../src/jpeg/jconfig.h': No such file or directory
(this is when compiling jpeghandler.c in printlib)

I found two versions of jconfig.h, namely Amaya/libjpeg/jconfig.h
and wxWidgets/src/jpeg/jconfig.h. The two differ somewhat. Which
one is the right one? I assume I have to fix an include path setting
to get rid of the error.

Any help appreciated.       With kind regards,    Martin.
