We have been building on Windows 7 using Studio 2005 version 8.0 tools
and are in the process of moving to Studio 2008 version 10.0 tools and
adding a 64 bit build flavor. We are not quite ready to post an update
to the build process yet, but you can see what we have been using here:

We did have to stay with an older version of Cygwin as the newer
versions would fail to build with a fork resource issue with the shell
under the build process. Most of the changes we are currently doing
involve adding a new macro block for the Studio 10.0 compiler as all the
paths changed.
