Dear Emanuel,

I have tried compiling Greenstone with Visual Studio 2005 and committed
a few changes necessary to get it to compile. I haven't committed your
changes to the makefiles and the source code to prevent all the
warnings, as we want to keep Greenstone compiling with Visual C++ 4 (at
this stage, anyway).

However when I run the compiled library.exe or server.exe it crashes
with an exception -- did you experience this problem?
