May be even overkill since it may work on MinGW or CygWin.


gnumeric-list mailing list
gnumeric-list gnome org

I will certainly give VirtualBox a good hard look(can't afford the costly paid versions).
Thanks for the suggestion.

But being an old retired guy with nothing much to do, I was hoping to be able to actually make a Windows executable every 4 or 5 months from the source code. I can't see it needing changed monthly unless there are very serious problems with a previous build.

May have to give that idea up. Don't want to, but I need the necessary scripts and an application on windows to do it.
