No. I can not launch exe yet.
Is there any tutorial for it?
1.) Can You give me Your k-meleon.exe and the kplugins.dlls, please?
You know more than me. I cannot build these parts.
2.) There are old build instructions to build Firefox with free tools
From there I know to build the GRE with Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition.
2a) I use the Mozilla-Build
environament from Windows_Build_Prerequisites
(link from build Prerequisitives Page. Some tools have a recommended location.)
It contain the up to date tools to make any Mozilla GRE.
2b.) And the Source naturally.
2.c) Building any current GRE with free Tools definitely needs
Microsoft Microsoft Platform SDK for Windows Server 2003 R2
Because it is the only that has free mfc, atl, crt... includes.
Since You have VS 2005 You can use any other SDK.
3.) I needed an altered comsupp.lib, the normal system calls brake the build.
The one I will include in a subfolder is from Mozilla.zine thread, link above.
The zip includes the sources and the lib. All other mentioned later go there too.
4.) I used a .mozconfig like described by Robert Kaiser
. I will include my .mozconfig.
I also patched like he described. I will include the patched atlbase.h.
5.) I used a 1.bat that starts the build in writes the results and errors to a log. So that I could search google for the solutions, because I am no developer or coder.
6.) A finished SeaMonkey build with Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition is at http://two.xthost.info/kmupdate/bin.7z
It includes the described files. Also three manifest files that are copied into ./dist/bin - when the compilation stops at half way with error: cannot find *80.dll.
7.) To do. Place the files where they must go.
Setup instructions are at Mozilla build instructions.
Next You need to partially build a Tbird or Firefox 1.8 non static.
You need its chrome.dll and chrome.xpt to run K-Meleon's chrome components.
Next replace the files of K-Meleon GRE with files from new GRE and K-meleon.exe etc. with Yours.
And You have to test if it really helps to use the GRE build with Visual C++ 2005.
I wish You success, greetings to CN(?) from DE.
p.s. added forgotten Seamonkey manifest and the two mentioned chrome files from a Tbird build.
