One problem with 2.6.3 - there is a dependency problem when building 'Debug DLL' (VC7.1, win xp) - the order on which the dll are created is incorrect.

For example, every dll requires wxtiff to exist - however, it is built 13rd ..

Once it is created succesfullly, I need to build the environment again, but now core is missing and so on.

eventually I need to build to environment 5 times to get it done (still the odbc does not build under Debug DLL)

IDE: CodeLite + wxCrafter
OS: All

Use wx_dll.dsw to build the dll versions. I rearranged the order of the projects in the wx.dsw file here:

http://cvs.wxwidgets.org/viewcvs.cgi/*c ... w?rev=1.11

but bakefile reorders them again.
