Windows version of OOo/LO using the free (as in beer) compiler VC++ 2008 Express. See http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/Documentation/Building_Guide/Building_on_Windows No absurdity involved.
Which is free (as in beer) for *as long as Microsoft wishes*. Plus it is no longer updated and creating a script for VC 2010 requires changes. Finally, the free VC version does not create x64 builds which I hope LO starts producing since most (all?) modern CPUs are 64bit... Apparentely the OOo developers agree with me...This is a quote from the wiki article pointed by Simon; "and although Microsoft is supplying Visual Studio Express edition free of charge for the time being, they may stop to do so in the future. And it may make sense to keep OOo to be buildable with open source tools" So, given the limitations I do think it's absurd -- View this message in context: http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/Compiling-in-Windows-tp1792684p1816680.html Sent from the Discuss mailing list archive at Nabble.com. -- Unsubscribe instructions: Email to firstname.lastname@example.org Posting guidelines: http://netmeister.org/news/learn2quote.html Archive: http://www.documentfoundation.org/lists/discuss/ *** All posts to this list are publicly archived ***
