I've decided to have a look at the DR code, which starts with trying to compile it. I found this page and began going through the instructions.
I used TortoiseGit to clone DR. Is this any different to going to GitHub and downloading the project as a zip file, or is a Git client just for keeping things synchronized?
The link to TortoiseGit takes us to a different program:

Only a Google search takes us to the correct program.
I extracted the w32deps/ and w64deps/ folders into DarkRadiant so my folder structure matched the screenshot.
When I tried to compile (Debug/Release or Win32/64 makes no difference) I got well over 100 errors about missing files:

I did some searching and found a solution to the above:
(reinstall VS (it may do an update) then you'll see the modify button mentioned by parsely72)
I then got it to compile, albeit with many warnings:

Those warnings disappeared after the first compilation, so I guess all relevant files were created.
Hopefully my story will help someone else. Does the wiki page need updating?
