Why greenstone is keeping support for VC++ 4.0?
If is for Windows 3.1 is there any statistics on
how many Greenstone users are using Windows 3.1?

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?
