What was the last version that worked? If you can narrow it down to a
specific date or even a range of dates that would help quite a lot.
If you want to test old daily builds but no longer have the installer
then let me know which date you need. I have all the daily installers

Any idea what Windows 95 compatibility does? Maybe it breaks
differently with the compatibility.

I know almost nothing about Windows XP. I did build a few SWISH-E
releases using MSVC7 on Windows XP. I believe I had (worse than normal)
stat() problems with MSVC7's runtime when the programs were run on
Win9x. I no longer use MSVC7 for various reasons; primarily because
MSVC6 provides better project compatibility. MSVC7 can't export
makefiles nor MSVC 5/6 projects but it can import.

You can download the entire CVS repository here:
Extract it somewhere (e.g. c:\cvsroot) then set
CVSROOT=c:/cvsroot/swishe however your CVS client does that. Now you
can checkout swishctl from your local copy.

As of roughly a week ago they were working fine. But, CVS is constantly
changing. I typically only update the MSVC projects when needed or for

Probably not. But, if someone knows how I could cross-compile MSVC++
code under Linux then maybe. I was never able to build g++ as a
