bug report - makepanda.bat with vc2008 on vista

I have a fairly clean vista on which I’ve only got vc2008 installed (no 2005) and was hitting the issue that it couldn’t find the platform sdk. With a little digging, I found on vista the sdk is installed at

C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.0A

which isn’t where makepanda looks for it

trying to compile with this now - will see what happens

Right. I intentionally didn’t make it check for that path.
The reason for this is that there is a part of code in Panda that depends on stuff that only happens to be in one particular version of the PlatformSDK.
As described here:
panda3d.org/manual/index.php/T … on_Windows

Or, compile with --no-directcam, that might work too (not sure though, I recommend just installing the PSDK linked to in that page).
