Mismatched SDK = plr.dll that does not work correctly with EDB builds of postgres. > So long as you don't pass a FILE* across DLL boundaries, or free() > memory that was malloc()'d in another DLL, mixing runtimes should > work fine.

I'm not good enough with MSVC and Windows debuggers to figure out why, and don't have the time or interest to become so, I just know matching the SDK to the postgres build resulted in it owrking for me and no more complaints of this type from the field. It would work fine with the postgres build I made, but not with the EDB build which of course is what virtually everyone running pg on Windows uses. > Maybe it's specific to how we do build within a Pg source tree?

Trivial is probably the key thing. With PL/R it also has to link against the R.dll which is built with yet another toolchain on Windows.
