Visual C++ 2008 Support?
« on: July 13, 2007, 03:42:39 pm »
Has anyone attempted to intergrate the compiler included in Visual C++ 2008 (Orca beta) in CodeBlocks yet?  I assume there are different options to the compiler than there were to 2005.

Good to know.  What don't you like about the compiler (which is the only reason I'd take a look if it was better than 2005's)?

Did you get the same result VC++ 2005 or 2003?

I use MingW also normally...but like to have options.

i have tried it with 2005 and everything worked perfectly. seems like 2008 comes with modified standard headers  :?

modified standard headers? O.o
What does that mean? That they're not standard after all?

Microsoft has own standard. On my work place lot of people  migrating to Linux after meeting with Vista :shock:... Lots of them are switching to Ubuntu. Still don't know which Linux is the best.
gcc+winXP+suse.

lubos your ignorant. Why would you wanna use GCC? Generate stupid makefiles. Have bulky executables. And other stuff. Just cause it didn't compile for your stupid engine. Your going to say it sucks. Maybe its cause you don't know what your doing or maybe. The stupid engine project files were badly setup.

Kiryn, reconsider your attitude towards other board members...
Be patient!
This bug will be fixed soon...
