Build with gcc

I have an XLW project in Visual Studio 2010 (created from the template, so it also includes RunInterfaceGenerator). Is there any way to build it without having Visual Studio installed?

I mean, create a script or something, and send the solution to someone else who doesn't have VS. He can then make some changes to the source code and use the script to build the project.

UPDATE

So now I'm trying to build with gcc the default EchoShort template example. I have GCC 4.8.3 (cygwin), not 4.5.2 like it's described in the "gcc Command line setup" (link at the end). I am first building the xlw library and then the template project, I get no errors, but when I try to run the xll then Excel crashes. Any help please?

well you can use CodeBlocks instead.

The express version of VS is free these days.

That still requires an IDE. I want to be able to build it from console (have the script do that)

never thought about it.
You could the xlw-users mailing list.
