[Reported by Patrick Abi Salloum on parrot-dev. Can some people with access to Win32 take a look at this? --kid51]
I was trying to build parrot RELEASE_2_10_1-477-gfa56f62 on windows 7 for rakudo.
Starting from a clean windows 7 install, I downloaded git version 126.96.36.199.msysgit.0 and strawberry perl 188.8.131.52..
Tried automatically downloading and building parrot by doing
perl ./Configure.pl --gen-parrot
From the rakudo folder, parrot was downloaded fine but suring the build I got an error:
Minimum requirement for Parrot on Windows is Windows 2000 - might want to check windef.h
I removed the check if WINVER < Windows2000 from begin.c and the build went fine with no other problems.
