[mapguide-internals] MapGuide RFC 47 - Migrate to MicrosoftVisual Studio 2008

I only have Pro at work.  I may have played around with building using Express at home a couple years ago, but I don't recall.  I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to justify upgrading to 2008 ahead of the curve, so I may be getting some Express experience earlier than desired.
I don't see any reason why it shouldn't work with Visual C++ Express though, or maybe even just the Windows SDK - they rolled up the platform SDK and .Net this year.
Tom, do you have the command-line parameters for building MapGuide unattended?  FDO has some nice unattended build instructions for Windows, and I'd love to be able to duplicate those for MapGuide.

It should be possible to build with VS 2008 Express.  Unfortunately, everyone I know uses VS 2008 Professional so we will not be able to document this. I thought we had instructions for building with VS 2007 Express at http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Building_MapGuide_on_Windows but I don't see any references to it on this page; perhaps Jason has some more information on VS 2007 Express support.
