Building on Windows 7 x64 with VS 2010 Express

Postby samirarx » 20. Dec 2010, 05:39

I am planning to build VirtualBox OSE on my Win 7 x64 box using VS 2010 Express. Anyone aware of any gotcha's, or have any advice before I begin this journey?

Thanks,
Samir

Well the VBox team is in the middle of moving to different compilers for the Microsoft world (to "free toolchain"). Which one this is I am not sure as it could be VS-E or WDK (or possibly even something else). During the transition I am sure there will be some build issues they will be monitoring closely.

Correct. There is currently work going on to make VirtualBox compilable with a never tools chain on Windows. This will be hopefully finished until VirtualBox 4.1.

Hey Frank..

Please help me in compiling Virtualbox4.1 on windows 7 with VS-2010
I am using tool chain. ANd while comiling Virtualbox4.1, I am struck with the error---
C:\MinGW\bin\as.exe: unrecognized option `-Qy'
C:\MinGW\bin\as.exe: unrecognized option `-Qy'

Fixed it by choosing correct assembeler. Chnage the path from C:\MinGW\bin\as.exe to as.exe of the cross tool
