Seed7 version 2014-12-07 has some issues with building under Windows.
This has to do with database drivers and initialization values in
makefiles. To fix that I released version 2014-12-10:

- The database drivers sql_lite.c, sql_my.c, sql_oci.c, sql_odbc.c
    and sql_post.c have been improved to select a shared library / DLL
    from a list of candidates.
- The program chkccomp.c has been improved to configure database
    drivers with a list of shared libraries / DLLs.
- The makefiles mk_bcc32.mak, mk_bccv5.mak, mk_msvc.mak, mk_msys.mak,
    mk_mingc.mak, mk_mingw.mak and mk_nmake.mak have been improved to
    write definitions of the C macros MYSQL_DLL, SQLITE_DLL and
    POSTGRESQL_DLL to the file chkccomp.h.
- The chapters about integer, rational and exceptions in the manual
    have been improved.
- In bigint.s7i the performance of the binomial coefficient operator
    (infix operator symbol: ! ) has been improved by 17% (measured with
    gcc and valgrind).
- The optimization of constant expessions in the compiler has been
- The program esc2qte.c has been added. This program searches for
    backslash escaped spaces and quotes the string instead. It is used
    by mk_nmake.mak to process the file depend.
- Documentation comments in integer.s7i have been improved.
- The recognition of integer formats in chkccomp.c has been improved
    (the test programs now include <string.h>).
- The makefiles mk_msys.mak and mk_nmake.mak have been improved to
    use wrdepend.exe to determine the dependencies.
- The program wrdepend.c has been changed to include config.h (this
    way the macro MAP_ABSOLUTE_PATH_TO_DRIVE_LETTERS is available).
- A cast has been added to sudo.c.
