It works well in Windows.
Run x64 Native Tools Command Prompt for VS 2022
cd to $ECL/msvc
In Makefile enable line ECL_WIN64 = 1, it turns on Windows 64 build.
Then run nmake and nmake install. Last command creates Windows ECL distribution.
ECL is compiled successfully on my side.
I did not test other VS version, but it should work as well. Also, I only tried win64 builds, have no idea if it will work with other configurations, drop a note if you’ll do that.

Hey Dave,

technically there shouldn't be any issue with the compilation. That
said *I think* that cl.exe picks the compiler mode based on the file
extension, and as you will see in msvc/c/Makefile, dpp compiles .d files to .c.

ECL (as the source code) can run with C++ core and C++ compilers but for Windows appropriate Makefile *doesn't seem* to cater to that.
