Any error that came with it?
Such as: fatal error C1047 object or lib file generated with an older compiler?
The problem is AFAIK that You cannot compile the needed Mozilla SDK Libs with VC 9. Mozilla Gecko Rendering Engine 1.8.x can be AFAIK compiled with VC 6 (SeaMonkey.org used that compiler), VC7.1 (Dorian @ K-Meleon.org used that compiler) and VC8 (Kairo's SeaMonkey tinderbox with MS VC 2005
). Building GRE 1.8.x with VC9 was not supported by Mozilla.org and I do not know of any instruction how too build with it.
The SDK that comes with Dorian's 1.5b handout is AFAIK generated with VC 7.1.
What can You do now?
I uploaded a Mozilla SDK for GRE 1.9.1.x (that can be used to build for current K-Meleon 1.6beta). It was build with VC9. It is at dhost.info.
There You will also find a GRE 188.8.131.52 compiled with VC9.
Building K-Meleon 1.6beta sources (which are VC8 adapted source except for the project files) with target: K-Meleon.exe and kplugins is possible with VC9. You must change some items that are not consistent but it is not very much to change. Missing paths and compiler options in the "*.vcproj" files mostly, these file are not updated to VC 8.
I recently tried to build 1.6beta with VC9 and succeeded for version win32 release ( with much help & counsel / I do not know how to build VC Projects).
My exe was unstable however. :(
You can download a Gnu Tarball of the 1.6beta Source via the CVS Page
Or log into the CVS
cvs -d:pserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot/kmeleon login
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/kmeleon co -P modulename
Or look for more info from the CVS entry page
