    Hi,

    I know that Netgen should be compiled with Visual Studio 2008 and in fact it does not compile here with Visual Studio 2010. But I wonder whether someone has managed to adapt the configuration to newer compilers. Does anybody know what has to be changed to make Netgen compilable with Visual Studio 2010?

    Thank you!

    Visual Studio 2010 could not convert the 2008 project files on my computer since there were two configurations defined: win32 and x64, of which the latter is not supported on my computer. In this case Visual Studio 2010 will fail to import the project.

    But there is a simple workaround. I had to edit the .vcproj files and remove the configurations starting with

    " <Configuration
    Name="Debug|x64"".

    After doing that Visual Studio 2010 was able to import the projects.
