Compiling CS is not hard, but many people have issues to do this. I maked an experimeriental precompiled SDK for VisualC++ Express (vc8).
You can download here:http://w3.cablenet.hu/maxjoco/cs/cs-bin-package-2006-07-07-vc8-sdk_rel001.rar
I make the SDK better and update daily, and make support for CEL, when some people needs this
. When nobody interesting, I don't wanna work for nothing.
About the package:
svn version 2006. 07-.07. (I use this version).
Contains all debug and release dll-s and libs, all apps and tools compiled in release mode, and apps sources(without project files,this is a todo).
You need the latest cs win32 library package too , with msvc8 support.
Read the installing notes for more information.
