The topics that will be covered in this hands-on session are:

 

  1. Creating IDE project files for Visual Studio 2008

 

 

Creating the IDE project files for Visual Studio 2008

 

The command lines used to create Visual Studio project files for ReactOS are listed below.

 

  1. make msvc8 - Create project files for Visual C++ 2005 (8.0)

  2. make msvc9 - Create project files for Visual C++ 2008 (9.0)

  3. make msvc10 - Create project files for Visual C++ 2010 (10.0)

 

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.

 

Download and install ReactOS build environment: Launching the RosBE console

It will take some times to open all the projects (modules).

With hundreds modules, the IntelliSense updating also will take some time.

 

Download and install ReactOS build environment: the RosBE make msvc command, the intellisense also updating

 

As previously done, to clean up the Visual Studio generated files, issue clean all command.

 

Download and install ReactOS build environment: the RosBE make msvc command, clean all command, cleaning all the visual studio project files

 

However not all files were deleted.
