Thanks Ron,

The problem is that the Tools have changed over time. The current batch don't work with WinXP and 
give the following error with required programs.
" The procedure entry point CancelSynchrousIo could not be located in the dynamic link library 

I can compile older versions of MESS with Mingw. I think the last setup was version 4.9.1. The 
current MAME needs at least gcc 5.3.0 .
