    vcpkg Library Manager

    Has anyone here heard of the vcpkg library management tool? It's intended for programmers and is apparently a similar concept to package management which is common in Linux. i.e. if you need to build...
  2. Re: Where is the list for MRU projects in VS2019 ?

    Thanks 2kaud but that's what confused me....

    If I search for any of my VS2019 projects (or solutions) in the registry, they don't seem to be there... :cry:
  3. Where is the list for MRU projects in VS2019 ?

    I have a weird problem here with one particular project in VS2019 (it's a Visual C++ project)

    Regardless of whether I try to open it from within VS2019 - or by double clicking from within Windows...

    Just a long shot S_M_A - but did you also happen to choose Debian or one of the others?

    Re: WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux)

    I've hit a different hurdle... :cry:

    I got everything installed but it won't run. The reason is that although I'm running Win10, I'm running it on Mac hardware (i.e. dual booting). The WSL stuff...

    Re: WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux)

    Wow, that looks promising!

    The only issue I've had is that I'll need to install Linux (and only some distros are supported). But even the supported ones say they won't work "in S mode" - or that...

    WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux)

    Has anyone here tried WSL? AFAICT it's a way to install Linux so that it can be launched in Windows10 - and the Linux distro of your choice will then run in a virtual machine - BUT - if I'm reading...

  15. [RESOLVED] Namespace problem with older version of MSVC

    I have a project here which still needs to build with VS2008 and I've discovered a problem with std::min() and std::max()


    #include <algorithm>

    That reminds me... whatever happened to manifest files? In some earlier versions of VC++ it was necessary to include something called a manifest file at the link stage. IIRC this later told the OS...

    It's great to hear that MS have fixed this but I must admit, I'm confused... If I'm reading the article correctly it implies that VS2015, 2017 and 2019 will now be compatible with each other - but in...

    A nice surprise (re: name-mangling)

    I might be wrong about this - but in earlier versions of Visual C++ I've a recollection that it wasn't possible to "mix + match" between different compiler versions. So if you compiled something with...
