in reply to Windows PDL complie issue
Not all C compilers are created equal, and the linux Gnu compiler has some differences with the Microsoft compiler. Nmake also has differences from the linux make, all of which means it's up to the module to have code and a build process that works in either place.
As you've found out, your module involves some C code which the Microsoft tools don't seem to like, so unless you're fluent enough in C to resolve those differences, you may be out of luck. If you've gotten far enough to get messages like this one, you're probably Doing The Right Thing.
I realize this probably isn't what you wanted to hear, but you may have more luck building for Cygwin than with the microsoft compiler. Good luck.
