Okay, I guess I'm losing what little of my mind I have. I just tried
building from scratch and this time it worked. I'm pretty sure I did the
perl Configure; I don't think you have all the files you need if you
don't do that part. I just noticed that the way you test the libraries
has changed from changing to the output directory and running
"..\ms\test" to using nmake to run the tests. I just tried for the
former and haven't tried to latter. I'll load this with my application
and see how things look.

Thanks for all your help; maybe someday I'll figure out what I did
differently this time. I've included the modified make file which some
changes in the flags for the compiler and linker.

That's odd. I just recompiled the 0.9.8 stable branch using VC++ 6 with
no problems.

Can you send me (privately not to the list) the generated ms\ntdll.mak
