Compile error building wxWidgets under msys2

Postby RobertSimpson » Fri Oct 12, 2018 10:25 pm

Just tried compiling under msys2 (not msys) using the instructions here: https://wiki.wxwidgets.org/Eclipse,_CDT ... _wxWidgets (The only thing modified is the directory names as they are slightly different with msys2 compared with the original MinGW/msys).

Everything was freshly installed. Running on windows 10.

gcc version 8.2.0 (Rev3, Built by MSYS2 project)

Code: Select all

I just tried it and got the same error. However the latest version from git does compile.

I don't remember anyone reporting the error with mingw/gcc8.2 so I don't know when or how this problem was fixed.

Possible fix; not sure it is the whole fix or not.

Code: Select all

Message:
Fix invalid cast in wxMSW AutoHANDLE::InvalidHandle()

Somehow this compiled with the previous gcc versions (as well as MSVS),
but a static_cast from an integer wxUIntPtr type to a pointer HANDLE
type is obviously invalid and a reinterpret_cast is needed here.

This fixes compilation with g++ 8.

Thanks. That fixes it. No other errors.

Rob.
