[NTLK] Fwd: Einstein for Windows 10

The VS project is out of date for the current arrangement of source files.  The files it’s reporting missing – objects.cp, etc. – don’t exist in the repo anymore.  My guess: that code’s moved elsewhere in the decade or so since the VS project was setup.

Our best bet will be looking at the XCode project – which does work – and using it as a guide to setup a new VS project.

    I started setting up my Windows 10 environment to give this a try last night.  Hopefully I’ll get things completed so I can start compiling tonight.  VS2015 was installing when I went to bed.  First step will be getting jam to compile.  I’ll let you know if I hit the same roadblock.
    I’m *very* interested in getting Einstein to work on inexpensive Windows 10 devices.
