prebuild libarys for visual 2003

Post by Chr » Fri Aug 12, 2005 6:30 pm

Which ones?
Unicode Release + Unicode debug

For what compiler?
visual 2003

I've read some discussions about the future of wx, so i want to make it the beginners easy to start

I registered a project a berliOS (i'm waiting for the confirmation email) and then i would make a BIG *.zip, which contains:
  • *Beginner Tutorial for VC.NET2003
    *and for DevCPP if i've enough time
    *(some other tutorials, if somebody makes some...)
    *wxWidgets 2.6.1/2.6.2 distribution for windows
    *precompiled libarys for VC.NET2003
wxWidgets is nice

VC Toolkit 2003

Post by lowjoel » Sat Aug 13, 2005 1:02 am

just IN CASE people were wondering, from what i gather, real VC wx libs (release builds) CAN be used with VC Toolkit 2003 (which im using, ha i got no $$ for the real thing... i just modfieid my IDE (no prizes for guessing which one ;)) to provide native VC support... haha... but hey... i like their license aswell... nothing about commercial-ness :P) because cl.exe, link.exe, nmake.exe (which is in the win2k3 platform SDK), rc.exe are ALL identical to that found in VS .NET 2003

just remember to get the include paths (/I"dirname") and link paths (/LIBPATH:"path") point to BOTH your VC toolkit\include and Platform SDK\include, aswell as VC toolkit\lib and Platform SDK\lib directories

As much as your effort is appreciated, it would be better to discuss this issue with Julian, Vadim et al, and see if they are willing to provide a binaries distribution, with a setup file that will install headers only and DLL's or LIBS. I still believe the just starting end-user should not be responsible for compiling it all themselves. It should be a very low threashold to start working on it, gain their enthusiasm and then allow them to expirment with builds.

Can't hurt to offer pre-built binaries, but if this can be combined and put on the wx-site then at least people will know where to find them.
