Subject RE: Who wants to build OpenOffice? - win32, win64
Date Wed, 31 Aug 2011 15:19:06 GMT
Thanks Mathias,

I have seen some of those posts on LO, but I didn't see/understand details.

I can imagine there are differences because of changes in how VS2010 uses MSBuild, although
I don't know why command-line use of cl.exe from the Make would have changed.  It will be
interesting to find out exactly what changed that is a problem.

I suppose the idea would be to find out how to make it work with 2010 (I am slow anyhow),
with the goal of building a win-64bit version of OO.o.  If there are C++ Language changes,
that is a bigger problem of course.

I will keep looking for what is necessary.  I have VC++ 2008 Express Edition and SDK 7.0 on
my Tablet PC.  It can probably be used for a reality check.  Based on what you said about
doing a build from a USB drive, I think I can work on the Tablet PC and build from a shared
folder on my local network.  

Thanks for the feedback.

 - Dennis

IIRC there are problems with Visual Studio 2010. I remember some posts
on the LibreOffice dev list, Tor Lillquist, Jesús Corrius and others.
