Sounds like you're using the older version of the
minimalistic rockbox sdk for win32. See
http://rockbox.haxx.se/mail/archive/rockbox-archive-2003-05/0810.shtml
for more info on a version that does let you compile
the uisimulator.

You don't need msvc to build the simulator on win32 if
you use mingw (included in the above package).
