to make a short story , of a long one, made of 9.5 hours of systematic testing of different scenarios... The WxWindows 2.4.2 problems i talk about, in a prevous post, comes from the dmc headers, and not from the compiler exe or dll or libs. But i dont know, if the problems lies in only one or in many headers. After many others test, i made a dmc 8.39 clean install, then add the 8.40 beta files. scppn display 8.40.1 I did a full rebuild of wx 2.4.2, and none of the samples worked. I then begun to add, one by one, each of the following compoments of dmc 8.37 : scppn.exe of 8.37, dmc.exe snn.lib and finally the headers of dmc 8.3.7 ( that almost all the differences between 8.37 and 8.40) After each new component, i did rebuild the libs of Wx, and then try one of the samples. To my surprise, the sample tested, worked only after i added the 8.37 header files I then tried all the samples, they almost all worked. In doing that testing, i gathered some information. --- 1 If you do a clean install of 8.39, you no longer have rcc.exe and implib.exe i used the one coming with the dmc-cd. --- 2 Here are the differences between 8.37 and 8.40 Y:\dmc837\bin\dmc.exe *and* Y:\dmc840\bin\dmc.exe Y:\dmc837\lib\snn.lib *and* Y:\dmc840\lib\snn.lib Y:\dmc837\bin\men.exe *and* Y:\dmc840\bin\men.exe - not relevant Y:\dmc837\bin\sc.exe *and* Y:\dmc840\bin\sc.exe - sc.exe === dmc.exe Y:\dmc837\bin\scppn.exe *and* Y:\dmc840\bin\scppn.exe Y:\dmc837\html\compiler.htm *and* Y:\dmc840\html\compiler.htm - not relevant Y:\dmc837\include\CRTDBG.H *and* Y:\dmc840\include\crtdbg.h Y:\dmc837\include\MBSTRING.H *and* Y:\dmc840\include\mbstring.h Y:\dmc837\include\SEARCH.H *and* Y:\dmc840\include\search.h Y:\dmc837\include\STDDEF.H *and* Y:\dmc840\include\stddef.h Y:\dmc837\include\TIME.H *and* Y:\dmc840\include\time.h Y:\dmc837\include\direct.h *and* Y:\dmc840\include\direct.h Y:\dmc837\include\dos.h *and* Y:\dmc840\include\dos.h Y:\dmc837\include\errno.h *and* Y:\dmc840\include\errno.h Y:\dmc837\include\fenv.h *and* Y:\dmc840\include\fenv.h Y:\dmc837\include\float.h *and* Y:\dmc840\include\float.h Y:\dmc837\include\limits.h *and* Y:\dmc840\include\limits.h Y:\dmc837\include\math.h *and* Y:\dmc840\include\math.h Y:\dmc837\include\stdint.h *and* Y:\dmc840\include\stdint.h Y:\dmc837\include\stdio.h *and* Y:\dmc840\include\stdio.h Y:\dmc837\include\stdlib.h *and* Y:\dmc840\include\stdlib.h Y:\dmc837\include\string.h *and* Y:\dmc840\include\string.h Y:\dmc837\include\tchar.h *and* Y:\dmc840\include\tchar.h Y:\dmc837\include\util.h *and* Y:\dmc840\include\util.h Y:\dmc837\include\wchar.h *and* Y:\dmc840\include\wchar.h Y:\dmc837\include\wctype.h *and* Y:\dmc840\include\wctype.h --- 3 dmc compiler: ( both C and CPP runs ) #defines __DMC__, __SC__, _WIN32 but none of the others defines used in the defines mentionned in a preceding post. --- 4 there are 71 samples with wx. Only 55 compiles ok. i did not looked why, but i have some logs i can use to known which one builds and which ones do not build and why. Well, I am done.
