Hi David,

Yeah nose was an issue, thanks for letting me know about nose compatibility
being sorted that's good news as I use it a bit with my testing.

I last built 1.1.1 with express for 32bit it went fine (although I think you
do have to comment out , I was also able to compile with 2008 full for
64-bit platform, my next goal is to see if i can sort out blas etc. external
libs on 64bit.

one oddity I  had encountered with the VS compiler

At the time I had tried to send further output following a checkout, but
couldn't get it to post to the list, I think the message was too big or
something. I will probably be having a go with 1.2.0, when I get some time.
I'll let you know how it goes.
