CB and VC2005
« on: February 01, 2006, 12:34:07 pm »
I tried to adjust the VC2003 entry in the compiler list of CB to point to the MSVC2005 ,
so one thing I did was change in the programs tab the compiler installation dir to : C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC

And adjusted accordingly the include/lib/resource paths
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\include
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VV\lib ...

Then I have a project's target which uses this compiler set, but I don't seem to get any far. A message box shows up saying : cl.exe was unable to locate a component : mspdb80.dll ?

Anyone around here who already succefully combined CB with MSVC 2005 compiler.
(I am using the pro, not the express, but probably same problem).


[edit] that dll can be found in :
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE
and
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\VSA\8.0\VsaEnv

If you add this (for example the first one) to the ADDITIONAL PATHS tab, it works.
I wonder if there's a better and cleaner solution


Many thanks,
Lieven

Interesting.

There was already a topic discussing VC2005, but no one (if I remember correctly) could successfully use VC2005 compiler with C::B.
