comment Unexpected differences with various uses of NormFunction
In fact it seems to be enough to write norm=Norm, so the symbolic preprocessing must be doing something very fragile.

comment Unexpected differences with various uses of NormFunction
It's not so simple: FindFit[{1, 3, 9, 20}, x^n, n, x, NormFunction :> (notavariable &)] gives a straightforward error message ("not a real number"). And why does adding a redundant compoundexpression (Null;) change my NormFunction from "not well designed" to "well designed"?

comment Visual Studio Express 2010 on x86-64: libcmt.lib missing
@kkm Perhaps, but I did check every possible option on that feature selection screen. The SDK did throw up a screen about the compilers being already installed from VS express, but indicated that this was expected.

comment Visual Studio Express 2010 on x86-64: libcmt.lib missing
@kkm it is there now, but somehow installing things in the order recommended by wolfram (first VS express and then win SDK) leaves you without the amd64 versions of the libraries. Or at least that's what seemed to happen to me....

comment What is the best way to clip a graphic to a region?
@Szabolcs I don't think so. I used << Version5``Graphics`` and as far as I can tell, the PostScript engine can only deal with rectangular clipping regions.

comment Visual Studio Express 2010 on x86-64: libcmt.lib missing
@Szabolcs I did as you suggested and installed only v7.1 of the SDK and Compile[..., CompilationTarget -> "C"]seems to be working correctly now, so thanks. I'd still be interested if anybody knows if it's possible to have this working with visual studio also installed, though.
