I'm trying to compile Bitcoin from source code in Windows 7.
When I run ./configure, I get the following error:

checking for Berkeley DB C++ headers... no
configure: error: libdb_cxx headers missing

I have followed all the steps mentioned in the source code folder doc/build_msw, but still get the same error.

Additionally, I have tried following these instructions for building Bitcoin on Windows:

I have installed berkeleydb 4.8.30.msi.

What else can I try to resolve this issue?
