My experience has been with VC++6 only, so I don't know off the top of my head. I did a little bit of digging, and as near as I can tell the developer(s) did not include the ability to automatically do this. There are a number of threads in the Xerces-C-Dev mailing list about this: http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=xerces-c-dev >From a Visual C++ point of view, it seems that some people have had success with changing the definition of the PLATFORM_EXPORT and PLATFORM_IMPORT preprocessor definitions src\xercesc\util\Compilers\VCPPDefs.hpp. The standard approach for defining these (in my experience, anyway) is documented for Xerces here: http://tinyurl.com/vp8m http://tinyurl.com/vp9y As far as Cygwin is concerned, I haven't used it and gcc together enough to remember exactly how they handle what Visual C++ and the OS do. It seems that some people have been able to just use "ar" to archive the object files: http://tinyurl.com/vpbp Sorry that I can't be of more help...
