I have successfuly compiled SystemC-2.3.0 under VS2012.
For a system description and compilation, I had to enable static linking the following way, aside from configuring the include and library directories and the library name.
Properties->configuration properties->C/C++->Code Generation
Runtime Library set to Multi-threaded Debug (\MTd)
After that, I was able to compile the simulation project.
During execution, Windows throws an exception for the DCAST of line 359 on sc_thread_process.cpp. This is executed by the call to SC_THREAD(run) in the "CPU" constructor. The related code can be found enclosed.
Error: (E549) uncaught exception: Access violation - no RTTI data!

Visual Studio output:

The program ' coprocessor_func.exe' has exited with code 1 (0x1).
Could this be related to the issue that dynamic cast should not be called from within a constructor because the object is not yet fully built?
Under item 6:
This is an example that I am using without issues under Linux. Any ideas of what can be going wrong?
Thanks in advance,
