Hi Norman,
>which version of Geant?
I still didn't try to compile Geant, but I'm planning to download the 
latest version, geant4.9.1.

>which version of Windows?
Windows XP Pro, Version 2002, SP2

>which version of Visual C++?
Visual C++ 2008 Express Edition, available in
(I guess it is Visual Studio 9.0)

>exactly what problem are you experiencing with the SDK?
In place, where I must edit cygwin.bat file, I must add two lines:

call "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\bin\vcvars32.bat"
call "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Platform SDK for Windows Server 2003 R2\SetEnv.cmd" 

To find the file vcvars32.bat I had to modify the path of the first call, 
"Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0" instead of "Microsoft Visual Studio 8".
This is ok, but there is a problem with the second call:
Instead of "Microsoft Platform SDK for Windows Server 2003 R2"
I have a folder "Microsoft SDKs". When I open it, there are three 
folders: bin, include and libraries. However, in any of those folders 
there is no file "SetEnv.cmd", and in cygwin I get the message:
"The system cannot find the path specified"
I also searched for "SetEnv.cmd" in Program Files folder. No file
with such a name, no *.cmd files in general.

By installing, I followed installation guide made by Joseph Perl 
in slac webpage. This guide is written for Visual C++ 2005, where 
Visual C++ and Microsoft SDK have separate installations. In case 
of Visual C++ 2008, I think, C++ and SDK are coated in one installation 
wizard, so the installation procedure slightly differs from the one 
in slac pages, and perhaps there are differences in the cooperation 
of those two pieces.

Now, i found in internet "The Microsoft Platform SDK for Microsoft 
Visual C++ 2005 Express", and if I don't get any better idea, I'll try 
to install it and hope that it will work together with Visual C++ 2008
and all SDKs which already are in my PC :)
