Dear Michael,

Here is the patch for running server.exe without crashes.
I only tested with demo collection (so no mgpp stuff).

There is now a DEBUG setting in win32.mak that enable you to build
a version of server.exe with debugging symbols.

Also please let "/nologo" option there. Without it you have 2 more lines
per file and is hard to spot compiler errors/warnings.

I have get the same crashes like you and I fixed them in our code base. I
will try to get the CVS version and fix them also there.

The problem are the iterators. You can not do *iter when the iterator is
end() or
if it before begin().

Our library.exe is running without any problem. I hope to have a patch for
you today but I do not make any promise.

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?
