Hello Markus,

      Sounds like you need to change the output path for one of your
      solutions that way they won't overwrite each other. You can
      also use my Win32 build for MSVC 2005 (
      if you are using 1.5 and not working from SVN.

 P.S. This is what part of the alphabet would look like if Q & R were eliminated.
