[izpack-devel] Native Libraries for Win 64-bit ?

I have now installed "MSVisualC++ 2005" and the "Windows(r) Server 2003 R2
Platform SDK".

I can open the projects for the native libraries, but compile fails.
When I try to compile (Win 32) ShellLink.dll and COIOSHeper.dll, errors of
the following kind are generated:

c:\deron\3rdparty\izpack_3.10\src\native\shelllink\shelllink.cpp(409) :
error C2440: 'Initialisierung': 'const jchar *' kann nicht in 'const TCHAR
*' konvertiert werden
Die Typen, auf die verwiesen wird, sind nicht verknüpft; die Konvertierung
erfordert einen reinterpret_cast-Operator oder eine Typumwandlung im C- oder

It seems so, that the Platform SDK I use is not compatible with the one the
original developer has used. But I can't find any documentation on which SDK
to use.

When I try to compile COIOSHelper.dll
, many other errors will also be generated.

Anyone with exerience in compiling the native parts?

Thanks for any hint
