Anyone got any idea about this?


  One question, for C++ do you use SJLJ or Dwarf2 exceptions? I have
  switched the compiler to DW2 recently.

  Also, one pitfall that has hit us, and that you need to avoid, is the
  inability for C++ exceptions to cross DLL boundaries. You need to
  provide support for that from the ground up, before you get too loaded
  down with DLL's which can't support exceptions.

  Here [http://inkscape.modevia.com/] is the stuff we use daily. The
  compilers and "lib bundles" are located in win32libs.
