[h323plus] VC++ express ed. build problem

h323plus v1.20 supports VS 2008 via h323plus_2008.sln however ptlib 2.0.1
only supports VS 2005 (however you can upgrade using the VS Wizard). VC6 is
no longer supported in h323plus.

You are correct VS 2008 express edition does not support ATL or MFC so you
are very limited with what you can do. With the issue below, the easiest way
is to uninstall the microsoft TTS (Text to speech) SDK (if installed). If it
came with the platform SDK then you will need to see the directory where the
configure program detects the support and exclude that directory.

This can be done by adding the directory to an environmental variable
In XP. under control panel > system > advanced > environmental variables.

Note: you will need to close and reopen the VS project to detect the
environmemental variable change.
