windows build broken in svn ?

Mar 15, 2014 at 7:12 PM
First post here :)

I was playing with pcsx-reladed and continuous integration software, and I can't build on windows (build errors)
Can anyone confirm revision 89425 is actually broken ?

Is there a problem with Windows SVN builds ?

Anyone ?

confirmed the issue: some of zlib sources are missing (zero-byte) for some reason and the addition of rewinding functionality breaks windows build as well.
will take care of this tomorrow.

Seems that there is no gzclose_r or gzclose_w so gzclose needs to be used in both cases.

Fixed, r89535.

Thanks for the followup.
Build seems better :)
Now I'm failing with some missing 'afxres.h', but I believe it's because the main executable uses MFC, and thus the project is not buildable with Express editions of visual studio.

(for reference, here's what I get:
pcsxr.rc(10): fatal error RC1015: cannot open include file 'afxres.h'.)

Use Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Ultimate.

Indeed that would solve my build issue, but the price tag is quite hefty.
Wouldn't that limit the number of contributors to the win32 version of the emu ?

Visual Studio Ultimate is indeed incredibly expensive and it limits number of potential contributors and does PCSX-R works with Visual Studio 2013 Update 1.

I think it is possible to get it work with free express editions as well. It is best to start googling with error messages that build produces, and stackoverflow should have dozens of topic about MFC and express edition. MFC and Express edition is fairly common topic AFAIK.

OTOH Dev-C++ should be able to compile it.
