Visual Studio 2003?
« on: October 19, 2007, 08:15:59 am »
Do you think support for Visual Studio 2003 would be possible? I would be very interested in using your library (seems to run much better than SDL), but unfortunately can only use VS 2003, and haven't managed to do anything useful with the source code (tried recompiling the whole thing for 2003, without success).

Thanks for your time.

SFML should compile without any problem with VS2003. I don't remember if you can convert a VS2005 project back to a VS2003 one; is it the problem you are facing ?

I guess you could say that: you see, the problem lies in the fact that the .lib files doesn't seem to be working for VS2003 (which is normal, AFAIK), and I can't recompile them for 2003 using the projects that came with the library (in the "SFML-1.1\vc2005" folder), since they're, well, *2005* projects. And since I don't know of any way to convert 2005 projects to 2003, I can't do anything at all.

Have you tried this ?
http://www.codeproject.com/useritems/WhidbeyProjectConverter.asp

This program should be able to convert project files from VS2005 to VS2003.

Unfortunately, it only converts Visual C# projects...

Oh, I see...

So we need to find someone who would be able to manually do the conversion; unless I install VS2003 on my Pc and do it myself. Damn, I already have installed so many extra OS / compilers just for SFML... :?

I haven't tried it, but I think this converter might work.

Yes, this program worked and I've been able to compile the .lib files for 2003!

Thanks a lot!
