[gst-devel] problems linking/compiling plugins on windows with vs8

All gstreamer projects on VS6 (I think vs8 too) have mistake on include 
You must define :
    ../common in first and not in the third position.
You must define config.h (at the hand or with autoconf).

Don't forget the project files of VS6 (.dsp) must convert in Dos mode. 
VS6 doesn't understand Unix mode :-(
