I am planning to build VirtualBox OSE on my Win 7 x64 box using VS 2010 Express. Anyone aware of any gotcha's, or have any advice before I begin this journey?

Thanks,
Samir

Well the VBox team is in the middle of moving to different compilers for the Microsoft world (to "free toolchain"). Which one this is I am not sure as it could be VS-E or WDK (or possibly even something else). During the transition I am sure there will be some build issues they will be monitoring closely.

Correct. There is currently work going on to make VirtualBox compilable with a never tools chain on Windows. This will be hopefully finished until VirtualBox 4.1.

Hey Frank..
virtual box 4.1 does require tool chain or not??
Please help me in compiling Virtualbox4.1 on windows 7 with VS-2010
I am using tool chain. ANd while comiling Virtualbox4.1, I am struck with the error---
C:\MinGW\bin\as.exe: unrecognized option `-Qy'
C:\MinGW\bin\as.exe: unrecognized option `-Qy'

Fixed it by choosing correct assembeler. Chnage the path from C:\MinGW\bin\as.exe to as.exe of the cross tool
