Build Notes:

As of version 1.0.5, LockNote builds with Microsoft Visual Studio 2008.
The old solution and project files for Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003
are included as well.
There is also initial support for the SCons build system, but you need
to manually modify the SConstruct file to get it to work.

The LockNote source has following dependencies:

* CryptoPP, available at
  The source must reside in the cryptopp subdirectory, and a compiled libfile
  named 'cryptlib.lib' must reside in the root folder of the LockNote source.

  (Note that if you build a Debug version, you need a Debug build of 'cryptlib.lib'
  in the root folder)

* AESPHM, a module using the CryptoPP, available at
 * WTL, available at
  The WTL include files must reside in the wtl80 subdirectory.

The release build will compile with deprecation warnings in VS 2008 due to some
functions used in the code for which there are now replacements.
