Comment #3 on issue 459 by Wildcard input path for proto files does not work in 2.5.0rc1

Alright, finally found the answer after a wild goose chase.

In Unix, path expansion has nothing to do with code, but everything to do with shell. In Windows, the default path expansion is handled by the program, not by the shell.

Therefore, in order to expand wildcard path in Windows, you need to link against a special method to get this feature.

Not sure if this is a protobuf vsproj bug or VS2008 upgrade bug.
