to compile in the dos-window, you should use the "nmake" command instead
of "make" (but i guess you got this ?)
run "nmake clean" before trying to recompile
alternatively you can delete the *.obj files (they are used to test,
whether your *.c files have been already compiled)

when trying to recompile from within vc++ you obviously try to create a
*.exe file (as you indicated in a prior mail).
this is wrong ! when creating a new project, you will have to make a
"dynamic runtime library (dll)".
you might want to have a look at the vc-project from zexy (yeah!)
