The section on "Building on Windows using MSVC"
(http://www.w3.org/INSTALL.html) is brief (I should say, too brief
for poor old me)....and it doesn't mention that you need the regex
library nor about the xml parser. On recommendation from Shane, I
commented out the regex library from the config.h file.....the regex
error has gone.....but seems newer ones have arisen! In a
last-but-not-least attempt I am in the process of downloading the entire
fully functional libwww directory from ftp.idm.ru/libwww and then try
building once more.

Let's see how that goes.

Thanks for all your help.

If I remember right, on msvc6.0 you need some additional libraries that

are not found in the distribution. One of them is the regex library. I

used the regex from gnu but tried the regex from boost also and it
The same is right for zip library, xml parser. I think there is a link,

starting from wwwlib page, that explain the process of compiling the 
library on windows/msvc. It worked for me but some months ago. My
was to get all the libraries from that list and recompile them on
from sources. It took some time (4-8 hours) but the result was fine.

If you have other problems please let me know and I'll try to help as
as possible.

Thanks for the reply and you were right. I got found the wwwsys.h
file....added it in the path and the error is now gone, but right
it's missing regex.h. This time I can't seem to locate that file
anywhere on my system. 

There must be a better way to do this.....am I missing files? I
downloaded the full distribution from the website....
