    Building exe from existing source

    Hi,

    I have the source code for an RTS game (+- 240 MB in size). When trying to build it in Visual 2010 it will ask me to convert it and then I get a lot off errors.

    The source was written around the year 2003-2005. Could someone advise which version off Visual I should be using to build the executable without having to convert it?

    If more information is needed, just ask.


    Thanks in advance for any answer.


    Regards

    What kind of errors are you getting?

    Re: Building exe from existing source

    Here's how I proceeded, step by step:

    File-Open-Project/Solution->Project.sln

    Next Conversion wizard loads

    I click on Next (no back up) Next

    Then it starts converting 1 of 11 projects ( Cossacks2, DipServer, IntExplorer, IChat, CommCore, LF_Server ,ClassEngine, gMOtor, MissionEngine, Launcher, NiceVopyl)

    When finished it gives a popup:
    "The project cossacks2.vcxproj appears to be under source control, but the associated source control plug-in is not installed on this computer. Source control will be disabled for this project."

    I click Ok

    Next popup:
    "The project IntExplorer.vcxproj appears to be under source control, but the associated source control plug-in is not installed on this computer. Source control will be disabled for this project."

    I click ok
    (it goes trough all 11 projects with same popup)'

    Loading Solution
    Preparing Solution...

    Next Pop-Up:
    " The associated source control plug-in is not installed or could not be initialized":
    (3 Options: )
    -Temporarily work uncontrolled
    -Work offline in disconnected mode ( greyed out)
    -Permanently remove source control association bindings ( I choose this one)


    Preparing solution....

    Conversion complete: "All projects converted succesfully with some warnings. Please see the conversion log for complete information"

    No errors but a lot off warnings. One off the 11 projects ( Cossacks2) in the solution has 54 warnings.


    Upgrade log2.xml :
    I cant seem to attach an .xml here ( not a valid attachment) and pasting the content makes the post too long ( over 20 000 characters) (how can I show the errors?)



    Then it continues:

    Parsing files in solution....
    Scanning included files...
    Parsing included files...
    Ready

    Then I choose Build Solution.

    And then the following errors come up:

    Most of those errors are due to the later versions of Visual C++ being ANSI C++ compliant.

    You cannot "convert" these errors -- you need to fix them, since the code you're compiling uses illegal C++ constructs.

    That one you have a project for in the sources. Look up for .sln/.vcproj files. The required version is specified inside.
    I looked inside and it says version 8.0. So I'll install the 2005 version and see if that is any better. Thanks for that suggestion.

    error MSB3191: Unable to create directory "q:\" - does the drive q: exists on your PC?
    Meh, no I do not have a q: drive. An C: and an E: I have.

    Understood. I'll try with an earlier version off Visual C++ rather than fixing these errors myself and creating possibly more problems. Thanks

    Re: Building exe from existing source

    (Can't find no edit my post button, hope you dont mind double posting)

    As said in previous post. I opened the .sln file and it stated following:

    "Microsoft Visual Studio Solution File, Format Version 8.00
    Project("{8BC9CEB8-8B4A-11D0-8D11-00A0C91BC942}") = "cossacks2", "COSSACKS2\cossacks2.vcproj", "{60D954A2-8B83-46E3-9BCF-B614117E2F7D}"

    I read that as Version 8.00, hence Visual 2005, so I installed it but on running that version and opening the solution it's asking me to convert again, saying it was created in a previous version.
    What am I missing here? ( And should I install an even earlier version? 2003?)

    Better would be fixing the errors...

    I see your point. It's just, as you can tell from the above problems I'm encountering ( not been able to determine which version off VS it was build in myself,...) I still have a long way to go and I seriously doubt I have the knowledge and/or skills to start fixing additional errors which come up after converting it. (Unless you offer to help me to fix the errors ;-) )

    See, the way I'm looking at it, when the source was created an .exe was succesfully build from it then for the game and as such I should be able to reproduce that process given that I can create the same environment ( version, settings,...) as the developpers did back then.

    You may ask why I'm not using the .exe build then. Well, it's for a modification off the game, and before making any changes to the source itself I want to ensure that it builds the .exe properly from the original source without having to think I'm the one who made the errors by changing any lines off code.

    Hope that makes sense?


    So I tried on VS2003, it no longer asks me to convert trough the conversion wizard. It seems to open properly.

    I changed the properties off the projects from Q: to my E: drive (linkers, custom build settings,..)( still cant believe I missed that one at first)

    And then when building I get the following:

    Code:

    at the last line ( with csun.h ) it seems to hang there and not do anything anymore. Not sure why.

    Re: Building exe from existing source

    Looks like either you are missing some files or they are not in the right path. Did you try to find these files?

    To keep the plot moving, that's why.

    Re: Building exe from existing source

    ( And should I install an even earlier version? 2003?)
    Yes, solution file format version 8.00 means VS.NET2003.
    Best regards,

    I looked up these 2 files to see if they were there. They both are present in the solution explorer. So why do I get this error then?

    Re: Building exe from existing source

    They are not being found in your include path. The "Solution Explorer" is not the same as the include path that the compiler uses.

    Re: Building exe from existing source

    Ok, those 2 above mentionned missing file errors are gone now.

    I build again and get following output:
    Code:

    Project configuration skipped because it is not selected in this solution configuration
