Hello everyone,
   this is a second attempt requesting the testing a Windows dll version
of ADOL-C. The first attempt was presumably swallowed by the mailing
list due to a too large attachment. Please excuse me if you're getting
this email multiple times.

Please find a tarball at
<url:http://www2.math.uni-paderborn.de/index.php?id=12067&L=1> "First
Windows support of current version (tar.gz)", containing the ADOL-C
Sources and Visual Studio 2010 project and solution files. The tarball
also contains the results of my compilation on 32bit Windows XP.

The subdirectory of interest is 'windows/' and the project file has two
configurations 'sparse' and 'nosparse'. Since the 'sparse' version
requires linking with ColPack, the sources and the Visual Studio project
file is included in the 'ThirdParty/ColPack/' subdirectory.

The documented examples in 'ADOL-C/examples' can also be compiled using
the Visual Studio project and solution files in that directory. These
also have the configurations 'sparse' or 'nosparse' analoguous to the dll.

Please test the precompiled dll and exe files contained in the tarball
as well as the Visual Studio files by trying to compile the dll and the
examples again. Please refer to the files Readme_VC++.txt in the
respective subdirectories too.

Since I am not an expert on Windows, I am unsure as to what files must
be distributed as the 'official' precompiled ADOL-C library for Windows
and in what format.

I would be thankful for all the input I can get.
