Why do you use a proprietory compiler? it would be
much better if you uses mingw32 or another free
compiler!

    Did you ever check out which compiler this project needs
    before posting this?

    Get Microsoft .NET Framework SDK from
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/net and you'll get a free C#
    compiler.

    Ok, that's a proprietary compiler. If you don't like the EULA
    for the .NET SDK then you could try to use Mono instead
    (www.go-mono.com) or the Microsoft Shared Source CLI (aka
    Rotor) from um.. google for it and you'll find it. IIRC Rotor
    uses a BSD license.

    Hope this helps you.

    There are no plans to move off the Microsoft compilers. As
    noted in the comments, the tools are free for download from
    MSDN.
