[Freeswitch-dev] Build problems under Windows 7

I'm just setting up a new Windows 7 box as an experimental upgrade to 
our usual Windows XP and Linux/Ubuntu environments.

Windows 7 Ultimate (64 bit)
Visual Studio 2008 Standard SP1 (C#, C++, and VB)
InnoSetup installed
FS Git installed to C:\freeswitch

I'm not trying to do a setup build yet, just a standard build.

However, I'm having problems with the JSON library.  It compiles Ok 
under XP, but gives VBscript errors under 7.  The only thing difference 
I can think of that might be relevant is I have VB6 installed on the XP 
box, but I doubt that's actually required for VBS.

At line 135 of the script, it's trying to create a .bat file in the 
directory.  The only thing I can think of is that maybe the random 
number generation isn't as random as one would like, resulting in it 
re-using the same script name and running into a "file exists" type of 

Any suggestions?
