The source files from the repository include changes for 1.6 and 1.7. With Dorian's files for the k-meleon specific changes in the Mozilla 1.9 GRE (SeaMonkey 2.0.14. or the Firefox 3.5.19 source) and deadlock's help I managed to compile all components to create a 1.6beta. But I gave up on 1.7 because I could not find a way to compile the exe and finally on trying to compile anything because I did not get the 1.6exe stable.

Greetings and best seasonal wishes

Also greetings to disrupted just in case you by chance meet him / he was also in Your country when I last heard of him.

You can AFAIK not build the current release as it is on Windows 7 because that Windows does not support VC7.1 / e.g Visual .Net 2003.

You can build K-Meleon 1.5.4 with some changes both for the GRE and K-Meleon.exe and the developer versions 1.6beta and 1.7 with VC8. K-Meleon 1.6 and 1.7 and their GREs can AFAIK be build with VC8 and VC9. You need the Professional Versions of the VC to get all headers, libs and tools.

On Windows 7 You need to need to start the Visual C 2005 Professional Edition as Administrator & for Visual Studio 2008 Team Suite this is probably also true.

Then You open K-Meleon Project source.

Your Visual C Version will warn You that the project files (*.vcproj) are from VC 7.1 and You must update them to VC8 or VC9.

Next You have to fix some things in the source or try to find out the exact settings You need in the VC project files. Dorian has some things set in the VC project files.

The rest has been covered in the first post by KM User. The instructions to build the GRE and create the K-Meleon specific changes. Read especially: Getting a command prompt for building GRE 1.9.1.x because that is valid for the 1.6 beta and also mostly for 1.7 alpha.
