IM and VS Express

Post by VanGog »

Is it possible to open ImageMagick source codes as project in Visual Studio Express 2008? I have Windows, 32bit architecture. I have the codes of ImageMagick-6.8.6 for Windows however cannot find any VS project. Would it be hard import it to VS?

You can find an explanation here: http://www.imagemagick.org/script/insta ... hp#windows. You don't have to build the configure.exe program, you can just run it from the configure folder.

Have you tried to open the solution generated by configure.exe?

I have found the project, but I cannot compile it because I miss MFC (this is because I have VS Express not the version I need; i miss some afx*** headers).

edit: I cannot run the configure.exe because I miss mfc libraries.

Don't compile configure.exe, just run it. It will generate a file named something like ImageMagick-x.x.x\VisualMagick\VisualDynamicMT.sln. Then open that file, and let Visual Studio upgrade it to VS2008 format. MFC is not required.
