Re: Building Issues (MSVC08)

Strange; I just unzipped the DXGL source code to a fresh VM with Visual C++ 2008 Express SP1 and it built fine. Next I'll try skipping the build dependencies and see if I can get it to not build. Make sure you aren't trying to build the "Debug no DXGL" target, as it is very buggy and may only build ...

Re: Windows 7 -- Configuration Manager Broken?!

The COM fix adds a registry entry in the user registry that gives ddraw.dll a relative path when accessed via COM. It isn't needed for ZC as Allegro uses DirectDrawCreateEx to create the DirectDraw object.

As for the ddraw.dll crash I will look into it in the coming days.

Re: Windows 7 -- Configuration Manager Broken?!

I do believe static linking would run into LGPL issues as that would mean including nonfree code in the binary. However, the runtimes required are the x86 versions of msvcr100.dll and msvcp100.dll This package contains the fully updated versions of the runtimes: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/downl...

Re: Building Issues (MSVC08)

The header is auto-generated, but I guess I missed the pre-build step in the project files for Visual Studio 2008. You can make the build run through using the attached files - unzip them to the common folder.

Re: Windows 7 -- Configuration Manager Broken?!

Here are the configuration files I have come up with: https://dxgl.org/download/etc/dxgl-zc-cfg.zip There are three Include directives at the end of dxgl.cfg - uncomment just the one you want for a particular fullscreen configuration, and as mentioned disregard them for window mode and use zc.cfg/zq...

Re: Windows 7 -- Configuration Manager Broken?!

I will have the files ready in the next few days.
I have nearly completed DXGL 0.5.17 and will provide these files once I have it released.

Re: Windows 7 -- Configuration Manager Broken?!

Very good. As I said, I'll look over the files when I can. I have Tortoise. I'll need to set up the other two and see if MSVC bitches about anything. TY for sticking to C++03. Makes all of our jobs easier. ;) Any word on those preset config files that I requested for ZC? Until I can solve his techn...

Re: Windows 7 -- Configuration Manager Broken?!

Dependencies to avoid warning dialogs are TortoiseSVN, HTML Help Workshop, and NSIS, but I believe it will still make working binaries without them installed. The GitHub version is currently in sync with the SVN repository, but currently SVN is the preferred checkout method. There is currently no mo...

Re: Windows 7 -- Configuration Manager Broken?!

I have the latest build, Legacy. Running Win 7 Pro, SP1. I can't do a src edit right now or make any kind of debug build, because I use MSVC 08, and you can't have parallel versions of MSVC installed on one system. Perhaps I could build it in MinGW, but that is likely to produce other new issues. (...
