One thing you can do is simply set up your own project file with all
the .cxx files in the src directory, edit include/pqxx/config.h (as
described in the README), and compile it all into a library.  The
Visual C++ Makefile hasn't been updated in a while, but there's
nothing magical about what it does.

You may also want to check out the mailing list on and
check the bug reports & feature requests lists there.
