Is MSVC++ 6 depreciated? (No. It works fine.)

The past couple of days I've been checking out the latest CVS but nothing I get will compile. In particular, it complains about openal (missing) and the sound system (looks restructured).

Does anyone (besides myself) still use MSVC 6? Or are the project workspaces just not being actively maintained anymore? (I was compiling successfully not too long ago...)

If not, I suppose I'll have to break down and install Cygwin or something...

Your thoughts are appreciated.

I still use it, but I haven't tried compiling for a while.

That would be unfortunate if its not being maintained any more.

The project files are updated and should be working correctly for everyone (that's what I use).

Just remember that you have to build Intern before the rest.

Ah, I don't feel so bad about my antique software now that I know theeth's using it too...

Yes, it's the intern that's erring. I introduced a bug I couldn't find when I tried to make a floating window in the text editor so I renamed that tree (for playing with later) and checked-out a completely fresh tree.

Intern complains thus:

Did you download the lib folder too? You'll need it.

:oops: :oops: :oops:

I know next to nothing about CVS. It's a veritable miracle that I can use it at all...

The blender tree creates a lib directory (with only a 'windows' sub-folder), but seeing the lib directory at the top methought 'great' and forgot to explicitly get it. I missed this because I'm a command-line junkie and went right over it...

Lesson learned: get 'lib' then get 'blender'.

Thanks theeth.
