Hi folks, I've been trying to compile CVSNT on Windows and seem to be flip flopping between a handful of errors (that appear to be Platform SDK related) and over 100 errors (when changing to a newer Platform SDK). Checked out cvsnt-2.5.03.2382. Checked out cvsdeps (head) & pointed CVSDEPS at it. Tried Microsoft Visual C++ .NET 69459-006-2660241-18279 Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003 Service Pack 1 (KB918007) ...on two machines Tried Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Version 8.0.50727.762 (SP.050727-7600) Microsoft .NET Framework Version 2.0.50727 SP1 Installed Edition: VC Express Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 76542-000-0000011-00125 Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 ...on one machine Initially on opening the solution I get "Cannot open \lockservice\lockservice.vcproj", there is "cvslock.vcproj" in that directory though. Platform SDK = Windows Server 2003 R2 Aside from cvsapi and cvsservice this completes with a number of warnings. Projects cvsapi and cvsservice seem to have incompatible structure and function definitions with a few bits in the Platform SDK, and indeed one of them has a comment above it saying if that line faults the SDK is out of date. The missing lib that should result leads to some later errors carried forward. 3 questions - I wouldn't expect to need to rename vcproj files to get it to work. Does the version in CVS actually build? The reason for choosing this version is that I have a binary (from Tortoise CVS client) that includes it in its install. - Is this the right SDK? The notes in "CompileOnWindows.txt" suggest so but they could be out of date. - Has anyone else got it to compile under either of these versions of Visual Studio? I only want to make a 1 line change, and would greatly appreciate any pointers, Sprow.
