Oke, I've managed to get it working like this,
with the Visual Studio Express... Its pretty easy :)

But now I have strange side-effects...
If I do a while(true,5) in pico, it works, and I can
even switch windows and eval over there with alt+tab.
But when I move the mouse a tiny bit DrScheme just

Second thing I've noticed: while(true,display(5)) crashes

Is this a drscheme-in-win32-error, or what am I doing wrong? I just
use the scheme-check-threads to let scheme do what he wishes.
This all works fine in linux. Maybe the compiler is buggy?

Another strange thing: In linux, when I have a .ss and a .so
the .so is automatically chosen, instead of the .ss.
In windows on the other hand, if I use a .ss and .dll, he doesn't
use the .dll. When I specify .dll or .so (which even isn't a 
windows type) I get the .dll.

All strange stuff :) Is it me? Or windows? Or DrScheme?
