I got the basic hello world gui example up and running in anticipation of using the projucer on windows.
I did get it to build but I had to work through a lot of errors to do it.
Basically VS2013 was pointing to 'windows kits 8.1' and ended up not being able to find a header file that doesn't exist in that version
To get it to work I had to:
Add include directories to a previous verison - 8.0 - include, include/shared, and include/nm
Add a lib directory /lib/nm
And the most awkward part - I had to change the include of <windows.h> to <Windows.h> and <winsock2.h> to <WinSock2.h>
