Hello all. I'm trying to get my system all set up with MSVC on Win XP
and I'm running into a few things that I want to get a good handle on
before I change them around.
At least the way _I_ built WxWidgets the build process places the
libraries in %WXWIN%\lib\vc_lib. The rake build wants them to be in
%WXWIN%\lib. I think I should mod the rakemswin file to bring it
Second, the wxwin libraries appear to be named wxXXX.lib instead of the
bare XXX.lib as specified in rakemswin.
Third, the wxmsw[d].lib file appears to now be named wxmsw26[d]_core.lib
and we need to add wxmsw26[d]_adv.lib, wxbase26[d].lib and
wxmsw26[d]_xrc.lib. Including _xrc requires wxbase26[d]_xml.lib which
seems to require something I don't have at all (libexpat?). I'm kinda
stuck here. xrc may not be required, only one external is missing from
the library, maybe we can do without it? At this point, I'm stuck.
Fourth, the output library tries to get written into a bad directory.
I've adjusted it to the directory the other libs are in.
I have an updated rakemswin if anyone's interested, though you still
can't rake a complete build out of it. I'd appreciate any help getting
