Hi again!

We have discovered the possible cause of the crash in Windows 
7.  We made some changes to:


in vlc\src\win32\dirs.c

That seems to be causing the problem.

Hi all!

We managed to compile VLC 1.1.5 in Windows XP under the
MinGW/Msys environment.  The compiled vlc.exe ran well on
various WinXP machines.  However, when we try the same vlc.exe
on Windows 7 machine, it crashed.

Is there anything I need to do different for Win 7 environment?
