Subject RE: Need a current build for WinXP 32bit
Date Mon, 07 Nov 2011 04:49:28 GMT
Thanks Mathias,

I found the ATL headers in the WinDDK/.../inc/atl71/, and libraries too.  There is also the
ATL Reference Guide and other materials available at MSDN on-line, along with some books in
a very dusty corner of my office shelves.  That is one heck of a dependency.  I wonder how
much of it actually adds to OO.o to do a static binding [;<).

It would be interesting to see how much could be replaced by plain-vanilla COM dependencies.
 Not something I will be in any hurry to dig into though.  Just something to nag my mind while
I concentrate on simpler things first.

Thanks Mathias,

I missed your earlier response.

I just checked to see whether the DLLs are on my system already and they are of course.  7.1,
8.0, 9.0, and 10.0 plus related patches.  

I will look into the WDK.

This seems a good place to start:
The release notes are interesting.  Hmm, 619.77 MB ISO Image.  OK, time to go do other chores
while the download happens.

As I already wrote on this list some weeks ago, you can get ATL headers 
by installing the Windows driver SDK. It might require to add paths to 
your build environment, but basically it should work with VS Express.

It might be an idea to install the driver SDK, get the necessary stuff, 
move it into a suitable location, adapt include path and library path of 
your build env and then deinstall the otherwise useless SDK again.
