[ros-users] communicating with windows

So I have been trying to get ROS to compile in VS2010 and I have run into
and solved a few problems.  Setting the BOOST_COMPILER_NAME to vc90 for
MSVC10 allowed cmake to finish and to use the vc10 compiler but with the
vs90 boost libraries, but that has lead to some pretty significant linking
errors, I was able to remove some of them by following the directions here:
but I still am unable to link two of the builds due to linking errors with
boost_thread and regex.  Another issue I ran into was that log4cxx does not
compile under vs2010 and I was able to get around those errors (I think) by
following the post here:
http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.comp.apache.logging.log4cxx.user/2842.  It
is my opinion that using the boost 1_44 vs10 libraries and setting up the
cmake file to be able to use external boost installations optionally would
fix the rest of these issues and allow it to compile and link.  I am going
to try and force it to use boost 1_44 and vs10 libs to see if this is true,
tomorrow perhaps.

Hope this helps,
