I just tried the Microwave source in VS 2013. I got one bogus error, telling me to use localtime_s, and 8 warnings, Escher_Date_t (long) incompatible with time_t (long long) on my system. Since TIM is a domain you can “replace” it with a modified version to change things like the localtime error. You can also do the same with sys_types.h to get rid of the warnings. You want to put these modified files in the gen folder, not the src folder, and then build the project again. Turn off the CDT part of the build or it’ll fail on localtime_s.
