Thanks for the suggestions. Linking statically however causes crashes if you ever pull in anything else dynamically (different malloc/free address spaces). That means that you can no longer ever link in a DLL (eg. luasocket) once the main Lua is not also a DLL.

As for providing an installer, I have an installer already, and that would be fine if no-one ever wanted to "require" anything I hadn't thought of, and already provided. That is not the case however.

Thanks for the information.

OK, I see that now. Sorry to trouble everyone. The problem is for applications that want to use Lua (particularly under Windows), not Lua itself.
