Compiling with Microsoft Visual C

This was successfully tested with the commercial compiler Visual C 6, and downloadable compilers VS2003 and VS2005. 

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%\build\msw directory 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\build\stc directory 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
nmake -f makefile.vc clean
nmake -f makefile.vc

This will generate wxhatch.exe
