	Suffice it to say that bootstrapping UNO and subsetting LibreOffice to
the point that it does that is truly a difficult task; and (FWIW) I
think building LibreOffice on Windows is a reasonably easy task ;-)

	I would be surprised if people are going to invest lots of time in
remote debugging your bootstrapping issues here =)

	Please try using LibreOfficeKit - that should be reasonably trivial
with a recent master Windows install and the headers copy/pasted from
include/LibreOfficeKit. If you pass the path of your install into that,
it should do all that bootstrapping logic for you.
