The topics that will be covered in this hands-on session are:
Creating the IDE project files for Visual Studio 2008
The command lines used to create Visual Studio project files for ReactOS are listed below.
Those commands are not visible in the current version of RosBE help. In this fun activity, we will try to generate Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 project files for ReactOS. Then we will try to open the project in Visual studio 2008. Firstly launch the ReactOS Build Environment console. All the settings used are default values.
Then issue make msvc9 command and wait until the process complete.
The needed Visual Studio files should be generated as shown in the following screenshot.
Next, launch Visual Studio and open the Solution file as shown in the following screenshots.
Some prompts can be dismissed.
It will take some times to open all the projects (modules).
With hundreds modules, the IntelliSense updating also will take some time.
As previously done, to clean up the Visual Studio generated files, issue clean all command.
However not all files were deleted.
