Please share that patch. When I try to "generate" the VS2010 project
files under CMake 3.0.2, I get these 2 errors:

You have called ADD_LIBRARY for library ssh_threads_shared without any
source files. This typically indicates a problem with your
CMakeLists.txt file

CMake Error: CMake can not determine linker language for target:

I've attached the log from CMake.

It doesn't matter anymore, but I was referring to this:
Which is linked to from here:

It sounds like libssh 0.5 is too old. Let's not worry about it since
we have 0.6.3 working.

They work :) I had to copy over the .h files,  but that took me
minimal time. Please share the aforementioned patch though.

I committed an update to the x2goclient changelog. This bug should be
marked as fixed based on that commit.

Also, I am keeping rough notes on how to compile X2Go Client under VS2010 here:

Think of that as the delta against the MinGW instructions:

[libssh-0.6.3-762055b-pageant-support-mingw482.src - VS2010 - CMake 3.0.2 Generate log.txt (text/plain, attachment)]
