Are you attempting to build 64-bit binaries?  I don't think Visual 
Studio 7.1 will do this, but the tools included with the PSDK will.

OK, so you are using the PSDK.  Which version?  What's the version of 
"cl"?  (Just type cl at a PSDK command prompt.  You should get something 
like this: Microsoft (R) C/C++ Optimizing Compiler Version 
14.00.40310.41 for AMD64)

What's your command line for mwc.pl?  Are you using -type nmake?

I have attempted a build with OCI TAO 1.5a (which includes ACE-5.5.6 
plus various patches and bugfixes) using just the platform SDK tools (no 
visual studio) on WinXP-x64.  I had to make some source changes but I 
did get it to compile.  Once I have time to look into some test failures 
I'll commit those changes to OCI TAO 1.5a and also the DOC group repository.
