I'm trying to compile r27737 with the patch posted above by Patagonicus. I'm not a Windows or C++ dev, so Visual Studio is a scary beast for me and I'm running into problems, I'm hoping someone can shed some light
When importing, I retarget for VS2017 and that seems to work OK. However, when I try a build with "x86" & "Release" selected, I receive the following errors:

Looking at the file paths and Googling the missing file, it looks like these are all non-Windows dependencies, so if that's the case, I'm not surprised it's failing.
I'm sure this is a completely n00b question, so apologies for that. But how would I go about resolving this. It feels like I should be able to ignore missing libraries that don't apply to the platform I'm building for, but I freely admit my ignorance on the subject!
