#56 Visual Studio 2008 patch

Jon Doran

The 2/26 snapshot did not build for me under VS2008. The project looked a bit out of date. I compared the project with Makefile.common and made some corrections.

The snapshot now builds correctly for debug and release, tested under XP 64 for a 32-bit build.

I'm not sure what the proper procedure is for submitting patches, and someone on IRC suggested using the forum. Let's see if this works better.

Comments welcome.

    What is the proper method of submitting a patch? I'm not sure how to do anything other than open bug reports.

    I just moved it to the patch tracker, which is the proper place. One thing: could you make another patch file? This one seems to be excessively big due to differences in end-of-line characters between the modified copy you made and the SVN version, and I'd like to see if I can use this patch to make the VS2005 solution compile too.

    I will look into making the patch smaller. I use the Tortoise SVN client under Windows to
    generate the patch.

    since we never received a proper patch, I'm setting this to pending and will eventually close it with "invalid".
