Dear XAPIAN developers,

I think your code is devoted also to be compiled on Windows with 
Microsoft compiler. I think so because
  1. There are many #ifdef _MSC_VER like code
  2. And if I remember correctly the xapian documentation,
     xapian has also C# bindings.
I need the xapian library for Windows Microsoft compiler. I created 
visual studio 2015 project and included almost all source files from the 
xapian-core repository. Compilation was sucessfull, but I have some 
runtime errors (exceptions). Could you please provide me Visual studio 
project file with proper options, or cmake file, or the list of 
necessary source files (to be included to the library compilation 
project) with necessary compilation and linkage options.
Also precompiled binaries with corresponding headers are acceptable.

Thank you in advance, and sorry for disturbing!
