I compiled the vlc-2.1.0 on win7 following official guide


all procedure are ok, but in the last step  "make package-win-common",

I met an error:

checking ole2.h presence... yes
configure: WARNING: ole2.h: present but cannot be compiled
configure: WARNING: ole2.h:     check for missing prerequisite headers?
configure: WARNING: ole2.h: see the Autoconf documentation
configure: WARNING: ole2.h:     section "Present But Cannot Be Compiled"
configure: WARNING: ole2.h: proceeding with the compiler's result
checking for ole2.h... no
configure: error: required OLE header ole2.h is missing from your system
make: *** [stamp-npapi-configure] Error 1

I used the MinGW 4.7.1 (tdm64-gcc-4.7.1-3.exe), Win7 64 bit, VLC-2.1.0
release packet
