Re: compile cpp with dsp project files on windows server 2008 R2
1. I need to compile the old cpp (which use iostream.h) with the dsp
project files, with as little change as possible, on a 2008 R2
which is both the development and target machine.
I discover that the platform SDK Feb 2003 cannot be installed on the
2008 R2 machine.
According to http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-ca/windowsserver/dd146047.aspx,
this requirement means Windows Server 2008 & .NET 3.5 SDK and Visual
Studio 2005 or 2008
I think I should Visual Studio 2005 to minimize changes to the cpp and
dsp files, right?
2. I want to use the exe and dll compiled from (1) to run on win
server 2003, if possible.
I do not see anything about Feb 2003 SDK at that link, so I'm not sure why you
think you cannot install it.
I don't think you will find much difference between VS2005 and VS2008 as far as
upgrading from VC6.
If you want to stick with VC6, one alternative to to install it in a virtual
machine running XP or Win2K. I'm sure you could install Feb 2003 SDK there.
