I was trying to build parrot RELEASE_2_10_1-477-gfa56f62 on windows 7
Starting from a clean windows 7 install, I downloaded git version
188.8.131.52.msysgit.0 and strawberry perl 184.108.40.206
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.
Sorry I could not create a ticket for this issue; trac.parrot.org just
wouldn't let me log in!
