Subject [Bug 57174] New: Update windows visual studio build
Date Fri, 31 Oct 2014 18:38:07 GMT

            Bug ID: 57174
           Summary: Update windows visual studio build
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.4.10
          Hardware: PC
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Build

The windows build has atrophied over the years. The web is full of errors
building on windows with a modern version of visual studio. The version of
Visual Studio build that the httpd source ships with (VS 6) is quite
antiquated, and my visual studio 2013 express does not even know how to upgrade
it anymore. I saw some people had first installed 2008 to upgrade the config
there, then opened 2012/2013 to upgrade it further to the compiler they'd like
to use. This is a rather poor build process for those of us who want to
ship/run on windows. 

I would like to propose that the httpd build should be updated to use something
like cmake, or else to use a modern version of visual studio.

Are there any plans to do this?
