Compiling the avs source

I've been needing to know these few things.
1 can avs be compiled using dev-c++
2 does anyone have the api.h file
3 why do i get about a billion errors in just the r_def.h file when referenced through r_avi.cpp.

As far as idiots go i'm not sure.
But as far as genius goes again i'm not sure. Now when it comes to imagination now thats another story.

This might sound stupid >>>

Is there any free version of MSVC++ available? A friend of mine was saying that the Express Edition is free. Is that true?

Can I use any other development environment (that is free ) other than MSVC++?

Express is free. there are a few other environments, but i doubt they'd compile avs without source modification easily.

Thanks for the reply.
So, is it possible to compile AVS source through MSVC++ 2005 Express edition?
Where can I find the source of the latest version of AVS?
Do I need any other resources except the source?
Are there any steps before compiling the downloaded source?

I don't know if thats the latest version, certainly there may have been some modifications. If you see that versions differ, post here and maybe benski/dro can provide updates. WRT other things you may need, obviously as previously mentioned the Winamp SDK would probably be handy.

I'm unsure on the status of a code repository/collaborative development effort. The sourceforge project is empty, and there is some other discussions at the moment revolving these projects.

Just downloaded the source. But a very strange thing happened.
MSVC++ was successfully unsuccessful to convert the source.
I got 66 errors saying Cannot open include file: 'windows.h': No such file or directory. I also downloaded the updated source from DrO. But no luck.

You need the platform SDK, there are instructions on how to supplement VS Express with it on the microsoft VS Express website (Lord only knows why they dont ship it with the download its basically obligatory for windows development)
