K-Meleon development related discussions.
[quote=guenter] [quote=microkernels] Hello.. I just want to ask if we can use the Visual C++ in the Visual Studio 2008 in building the K-Meleon's source code. I can't any of the installer of the VS2003 or it's not available anymore. Can somebody help me. Thank you very much..[/quote] K-Meleon 1.5.4 is build with VC 7.1 by default. I do not know whether it can be build with a newer compiler. But I know that You can not build the GRE 1.8.x and its SDK with Visual Studio 2008 (VC9). The compiler is not supported by the mozilla.org sources. I tried with VC9 and got this result as a build error. And You will IMHO need the VC9 build SDK to build K-Meleon.exe. K-Meleon 1.6.beta2 is build with VC 8 by default (Dorian, the core developer builds that way) but it can also be build with VC9. deadlock an I (with instructions from deadlock) have managed to build with VC9. My resulting exe was unstable however. No idea why. Plugins and exe need the directive [quote=Dorian] [url=http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/forum/read.php?2,117161]Posted by: Dorian Date: June 25, 2011 09:35AM[/url] In the preprocessor directive you should add WINVER=0x500;_WIN32_IE=0x0500; Also make sure that "treat wchar_t as built-in type" is set to no in the compiler option. [/quote] You will also find some more info about building K-Meleon.exe with new VC8 (usable probably also for VC9) compilers in that thread. [url=http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/forum/read.php?2,117161]Errors building K-Meleon with Gecko 1.9.1 using VS2005[/url]. I had much the same problems with VC9 if I remember correctly. You will find info about compilers and how to [url=http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/wiki/BuildKMeleonDistribution]build the needed GREs and SDKs for K-Meleon 1.5.4 and 1.6.beta in the K-Meleon wiki[/url]. You can possibly try to work around the unavailable old VC 7.1 studio or standard with other tools that are mentioned including links in the K-Meleon Wiki. You will find info about building software with VC7.1 compiler from Toolkit 2003 and other VC Versions in [url=http://xona.com/2004/06/29.html] Visual C++ .NET Standard Edition - Free Optimizing Compiler[/url]. I also read that You can prepend the needed VC7.1 compilers, headers and Libs to VC8 Express installs. MFC42 headers and Libs are with the [url=http://download.microsoft.com/download/9/0/f/90f019ac-8243-48d3-91cf-81fc4093ecfd/1830_usa_ddk.iso]Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 (SP1) Driver Development Kit (DDK)[/url]. This might be sufficient to build the 1.5.4 exe if Dorian did not add anything from mfc71 since K-Meleon version 1.0. BTW.
