[CLAM] Hoping I Could Get An Answer To My Deployment Issues

You did not get any answer because:

a) CLAM current release does not officially support Windows or Visual 

b) We are currently working in a new build system that will hopefully 
make it much easier to work with CLAM with other platforms.

c) The way that you ask the questions clearly state that you are no 
expert in MSVisual and I am afraid that, until we release our new build 
system, you will have many problems compiling CLAM.

I would suggest that in the meantime you get a good book on Visual 
Studio or, better still, you switch to Linux :)

And... yes. The documentation is outdated, any help in that direction 
will be greatly appreciated.
