Re: Using Microsoft Compilers to compile Java native libraries

This is great information. I have something in my Program Files (x86) 
folder called Microsoft SDKs. It has a lot of exe files in its bin 
directory. I don't see cl.exe but I do see lc.exe and also rc.exe Is the 
compiler there somewhere? Is there a 64-bit version? The one I have has 
an x64 directory, but it seems to be empty.
