You should be able to compile the XSD/e runtime library with the 
GNU toolchain on Windows (though with GNU the resulting library 
will be named libxsde.a instead of xsde.lib). You will need to
follow the "GNU make" instructions in the INSTALL file.

Once this is done you can use Eclipse CDT to build examples or
your application. Here are the instructions on how to setup the 
schema compilation with XSD/e in Eclipse:


Let me know if you run into any problems.
