Actually, for VC6, you will need to use TAOACE.dsw.  The .dsw
and .dsp files for VC6 should already exist in the TAO 1.4a 
distribution.  If for some reason they are not in the distribution
you download, you can generate them with MPC (you'll need Perl):

%ACE_ROOT%\bin\mwc.pl -type vc6 TAOACE.mwc

Good luck!
