digitalmars.D - What is vsi.lib (VSI_LIB) for Visual D?

Does anyone happen to know what exactly VSI.lib is? I'm trying to
build Visual D in Visual Studio 2008, and I'm getting:

Building ..\bin\Debug\vsi.lib...
The system cannot find the drive specified.
"..\bin\Debug\vsi.lib" not created!

I've already installed the Visual Studio 2008 SDK, but this doesn't
seem to be related to that...

Thanks!

vsi.lib is a D library built from converted idl/h files from the Visual 
Studio Integration SDK and some files from the Windows SDK.
You should adjust the settings at the top of trunk/Makefile and run 
"nmake" once to build the conversion tools and run the conversion.

You can then use visuald_vs9.sln for development.
