edx (Felix) is the man who can answer this better. He's the single person who
has bravely been struggling with making the simulator build on Windows. But
I'll give this a shot:

Use MSVC++ and use 'nmake -f Makefile.vc6' in the uisimulator/win32

It is not unlikely that recent code don't build properly using that compiler
and makefile. Most of the developers working on Rockbox use Linux and thus we
attempt to make the windows version build simultaneously (we have *some*
limited means to make sure of this) but we don't always succeed. Also, due to
very little help from Windows people, we can't expect edx alone to keep up
with the pace.

I, for one, would love to see someone putting together makefiles for building
the simulator using cygwin. After all, cygwin is the best suited environment
on windows for building Rockbox, AFAIK. So far, the cygwin developing
Rockboxers seem to be managing fine without building the simulator.

I can't do this myself, I don't run Windows.
