Can some one please check that the wxmsw26_dbgrid_vc_custom.dll is not building with the project(wx.dsw) on VC7.1 as the wxbase26_odbc.lib is not found in the lib\vc_dll folder. You have to manually copy it form the lib\vc_lib folder.
Also the project dependency order is incorrect, you have to build solution several times to have all the projects build.
Thanks!

I would suggest joining the Dev mailing list, and mentioning it there.

One thing I discoverd (it was also present in 2.6.1) when compiling wxBase from wxWidgets2.6.2, on MinGW, was that two needed .h files were not copied to the MinGW-folder by 'make install'.

The two missing files are:
\include\wx\msw\private.h
\include\wx\msw\mslu.h

Configuring options:
../configure --with-msw --disable-gui --disable-shared

Another thing:
I also tried downloading the wxBase-only package for Windows but it fails in the configuration process, saying that makefile.in cannot be found.
The only 'makefile.in' present in wxBase2.6.2.zip is located in \samples\console .
