Compiling with Microsoft Visual C

This was successfully tested with Visual C 6; you should also be able to follow these instructions  with the .Net release but this may infringe the Microsoft licence

1) Build the wxWidgets library if required

Modify your c:\autoexec.bat file to include lines like this: (check if the wxWidgets installer has done it for you)
set wxwin=c:\wxWidgets

To build this, run a command window, go to the
%WXWIN%\src\mswdirectory and type:
nmake -f makefile.vc clean
nmake -f makefile.vc
You should find that the %WXWIN%\lib directory now has a set of .lib files

To build the stc library, go to the %WXWIN%\contrib\src\stcdirectory and type:

nmake -f makefile.vc clean
nmake -f makefile.vc

You should find stc.lib has been built

2) Build wxHatch

To build the wxHatch.exe, go to the  wxhatch directory and type

copy 24makefiles\makefile.vc .
nmake -f makefile.vc clean
nmake -f makefile.vc

This will generate wxhatch.exe
