Hi there,

I'm still having problems getting the GTK Client compiled using VC6. As you
mentioned below, getting GTK all sorted out is proving tricky!

1) Can the latest GTK (2.10) be used under windows for Yate?
2) What is with the "regular" client. I posted an image of the main window I
got to the list previously. All it is, is a window that doesn't seem to do
much at all, if anything. A little confused about this one. Is it different
to the GTK client just in the interface alone?
3) Any hints on getting around the compilation errors mentioned below? I
think I am either missing some files or I need additional configuration of
the VC6 environment.
4) Does anyone build Yate for windows using VS2005? (VC8). If so, how did
you set up your build environment?

Thanks! And regards,
