Is prop page still needed for MSVS

Do you have a question about makefiles, a compiler or IDE you are using and need to know how to set it up for wxWidgets or why it doesn't compile but other IDE's do ? Post your questions here.

Is prop page still needed for MSVS

Post by Frank_WX »

wxWidgets-3.1.5 Samples build successfully in both VS2019 and VS2022 Preview without adding wxWidgets.prop. Adding that prop to the projects causes failures. A wxWidgets wiki page 'wxWidgets Installing wxWidgets for Windows.html#msw_build_apps' specifies that the only thing that is necessary to include wxWidgets compiled libraries in your projects is to add the prop using the Property Manager. Is that still appropriate, or am I using it in the wrong context?

The projects for samples are set manually, they do not use the .props file.

Everything should work out of the box, the .props file method is the newest one, there is not anything superseding it.

FWIW, here is my step-by-step guide showing how to use the .props file: viewtopic.php?p=206365#p206365

Regarding the errors, you get: Are those really build errors or just IntelliSense and such ones?
