Hi,

This is my first message to this list and I'd like to say hello!

Thanks to all who responded! I downloaded the Windows Server 2003 R2

Platform SDK from the following location:

  http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=484269e2-3b89-47e3-8eb7-1f2be6d7123a&DisplayLang=en

Then, as Edward recommended, I copied all the files from the Include and Lib directories under the Platform SDK install directory into the appropriate Visual C++ directories, and I was able to successfully

build libtiff.

I'd suggest to follow official installation procedure.

Platform SDK is installed under its own location and it's possible to configure environment/Visual C++ to use it without moving any files.

Here is a page where you can find instructions how to build GDAL using Visual C++ Express Edition. In fact, these are general purpose guidelines:

I hope it helps.

Cheers
