Building a new BendMX with Visual Studio.
« on: September 29, 2020, 07:50:45 pm »
I'm trying to rebuild a new BendMX with visual studio with the help of a friend. However when we go to build the solution it gives us errors. which I have also included a screenshot of. Is there anyway someone can help us understand what is wrong? Thanks Cam. Any help or suggestions thanks! Cam.

It looks to me that the project type is wrong simply because a lot of your errors indicate a missing  template library  (ATL), I dont remember Bendmx having any need for such a Library.

Some of the other errors might be due to not having all of the plugins included.

The project type should be an MFC dll as its not going to be an exe file. 

PS: Let us know what version your working on so further help might be obtained.

Hey Ghostship, thank you. I'm working on 399.a3 And I'll try that about the MFC build. Thank you :)

Correction on the build I'm working on it's actually 399.a1. Sorry about that.

We have updated the source code. No errors anymore. Now how do we create a self extracting exe for the updated files to install in the winmx folder and how do I know what files to put in there? Thanks Cam.

Hey, I'm new to all this. from the source code that i've updated. where do I start first.  (NSIS) or one of the other programs? and how do I know which files to include in the programs. Thanks Cam.

Install NSIS as thats the engine that creates the installer using a script, you can wiite or edit the script yourself but theres a whole raft of really helpful editors about including the one i use, install one of the editors after installing NSIS and that should help you with the install script or in some cases generate the file based on the data you inputted.

The file folks will require is found in the "Release" or "Debug" folder as the output from your IDE or Visual studio. project. you basically have to set the installer to place the bendmx.dll  file into the winmx folder its pretty easy stuff.

Create yourself a test folder and then change the install path if things work ok in the test.

PS: As this is open src you'll need to either share the parts you have updated with a link to the original src location or share the whole src in a compressed archive, I usually go for the sharing of the new part and a link to the old files to save space , a third option is to share the whole src from a web location if that helps.

Sorry for the late reply. I'll start working on that now. what about if I give a link to WinmxWorld archive mxcontrol for the source? Is that ok? Thanks Cam. Also I'll be giving you the new exe along with the updated source codes.

You can link here of course but we prefer if folks get the src from sourceforge while its still there.

Hey, ok I'll link it there. but i've ran into a snag. I can't get the exe to work. I've included the work I've done in a zip folder here. Take a look and see if we've done anything wrong. Any comments or suggestions are welcome. Thanks Cam.

I dont have this newer version of visual studio so unless you build the project and give up either the release or debug folder output (The new DLL whatever you renamed it to ) theres little to help you with.

I would still advise going with the NSIS installer as once its setup up you can use the same script many projects over with a simple text replace.
