Hello James
I'm glad you're you, who replied .. gives me confidence in my new
files. msi gplpv_2003x32_0.11.0.295.msi :)

 The compile on Windows XP Version 5.1.2600] 32Bit with WinDDK
7600.16385.1 and I have some doubts errors, if you got want to answer
(in a line) is appreciated.
 Also used to indicate some bugs associated with files .bat used to compile.

1.  Which achieves better performance static or static lib build or
dynamic lib build?
   (After much thought .. I chose the static, but the desicion is
based on 70% of ignorance)

2. Possible bug?
    In the file sign.bat, line 19, generates the line:
"C: \ WinDDK \ 7600.16385.1 \ bin \ x86 \ signtool.exe sign / v / s
PrivateCertStore / n / t
http://timestamp.verisign.com/scripts/timestamp.dll xenpci \
objchk_wnet_x86 \ i386 \ xenpci. sys "

   that when executed returns:  SignTool Error: File not found:

the correct url is  http://timestamp.verisign.com/scripts/timstamp.dll
(without the e), but neither goes ..
   This is really necessary? influencing not have it?

2. Possible bug when compiling with 32Bit Windows XP?
    In archive.bat file in line 4 is the sentence "IF NOT EXIST
%SEVENZIP% GOTO :end" for me is worth the ':'  :)
    For my part not know the syntax, Win XP does not work.

3. Possible bug when building on Windows XP?
   I had to insert the statement 'exit / b 0' at the end of the files:
sign.bat, wix.bat archive.bat and for these to run properly on the
line "cmd /C "%DDK_PATH%\bin\setenv.bat %DDK_PATH%\ chk WLH && CD /D
"%PV_DIR%" && build -cZg && call sign.bat && call archive.bat && call
wix.bat"  File makedist.bat.
   Without that line these files are not retrieved variables
setenv.bat defined variables, nor were run and call archive.bat

4.  It's normal to win a 2003 32bit domU with 9GB ram (on a 64bit
Linux), the driver xenvbd be 50% less than in disk access performance,
in relation to windows as host?
   It is acceptable performance? I can see graphs of benchmark WindowsGplPv?

 Thanks and sorry for the English
