I tested with several clients (that use both Rcpp and cxxPack) and it works
fine, but I have
not run all of the unit tests. The VC++ IDE is only used to build the DLL's
(and check that
everything can be compiled). These DLL's can simply be copied over the ones
by MinGW, and R will handle them without problems. This required some DLL
processing, and the fact that it works is surprising given the comments in

I did not test the possibility of running R inside the IDE as this would
require building R inside
the IDE, which I have not tried to do.
