I believe that would be very helpful too. Thanks Sam and Dieter.
By the way, I am also in the process of writing up a live.gnome.org
page regarding compiling the GTK+ stack from a stock Visual C++ 2008/2010
installation-the page is https://live.gnome.org/MSVCCompilationOfGTKStack.
It is not complete yet, and I know I am slow in getting it done, but
anyways to let people know.
Beware though, on the MSVC aspect, compiling the latest stable GLib (and
possibly some or all of the GTK+ stack) out of the box is only possible
on Visual C++ 2005 or later due to Windows API/CRT functions usage-and I
can't say much about Visual C++ 2005 as I do not have that to test that

I fully agree with this-though I wonder I have the chance to get him the
beer face-to-face (I'm in another part of the world)-but anyways he does
deserve *lots* of credit! :)

Thank you for you work! (Even though I am not going by the MinGW/GCC path!)
Might want to ask the others on this list about the status (or situation
about how to provide) binaries of GTK+-3.x on Windows-please be aware that
GTK+-3.x is less stable than GTK+-2.x on Windows at the moment though.

My guess is "yes"...
Also I'd like to know whether there will be interest to add VS2010 project
files to build GTK+-2.24.x-please let me know too! (Note: the VS2008 files
cannot be upgraded to be used on VS2010 directly as there are a few items
in there that must be edited beforehand)
Thank you, and God bless
