Yes, but the compiler commands that produced those obj files were not
present in the build output you sent.  I'd like to see the output you
get when building from an absolutely clean state, to help me understand
the cause of the error.

Downloading that revision via one of the archive links (such as the
'zip' link) is fine too.  But make sure you delete your existing
rabbitmq-c directory first - don't just unpack over it - so that you
build from a clean state.

This should be fine.  I expect that if you do not make this change, and
so build with the compiler from VS 10.0, you will get the same error.
