OpenSP runs under Win32 up to version 1.5.2 or something. The Validator
however requires an OpenSP version that does not compile any longer
using the Microsoft Visual C++ Compiler. Depending on build options and
your compiler, it actually doesn't compile under a number of platforms.
I got most of it running and posted the issues plus my suggestions to
the open-jade-devel mailing list. If it is still impossible to build a
more recent version of OpenSP using MSVC++ there isn't much I can do
about it, it's up to the maintainers of OpenSP.
