[Resolved]Building Virtualbox 5.0.44 on Windows10

Postby Cancer1987 » 24. Aug 2017, 07:36

Hello, I'm tring to build VirtualBox 5.1.26 and 5.0.44 on Windows 10.

I've done with prerequisites packages, such as libcurl , libxml2 ,etc.
But when I execute
cscript.exe .\configure.vbs --with-VC="C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\VC"

It shows

Shell inheritance test: OK
Source path: OK
Checking for kBuild...
Target architecture: amd64.
Host architecture: amd64.
Found kBuild: C:/VirtualBox-5.1.26/kBuild
Found kBuild binaries: C:/VirtualBox-5.1.26/kBuild/bin/win.x86
Checking for Windows DDK v7.1...
Found Windows DDK v7.1: C:/WinDDK/7600.16385.1
Checking for Visual C++...
error: The Visual C++ compiler we found ('C:/PROGRA~2/MICROS~4.0/VC') isn't 10.0 or 11.0. Check the build requirements.


But actually I've install Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Enterprise SUCCESSFULLY.

so why It cannot find the VC++ Compiler properly ??

-----------------------------------------------

By the way, when I use the menu "Microsoft Visual Studio x64 Command" in Startup to execute
cscript.exe .\configure.vbs

It showed:

Shell inheritance test: OK
Source path: OK
Checking for kBuild...
Found kBuild: C:/VirtualBox-5.0.40/kBuild
Found kBuild binaries: C:/VirtualBox-5.0.40/kBuild/bin/win.x86
Checking for Windows DDK v7.1...
Found Windows DDK v7.1: C:/WinDDK/7600.16385.1
Checking for Visual C++...
error: Executing ' ' (which we believe to be the Visual C++ compiler driver) failed.

----------------------------------
Thanks for help.

I've resolved this problem by myself.

This problem is caused by LANGUAGE difference of Visual C++ Compiler.

I'm a Chinese, so the compiler info is written by Chinese , but the configure.vbs uses English text info to check the compiler version.

What I've done is that I edited the configure.vbs in LINE 1067

if (InStr(1, g_strShellOutput, "编译器 16.") <= 0) _
And (InStr(1, g_strShellOutput, "编译器 17.") <= 0) then
'MsgError "The Visual C++ compiler we found ('" & strPathVC & "') isn't 10.0 or 11.0. Check the build requirements."
MsgError "g_strShellOutput is " & g_strShellOutput
exit sub
end if

'
' Ok, emit build config variables.
'
if InStr(1, g_strShellOutput, "编译器 16.") > 0 then
CfgPrint "PATH_TOOL_VCC100 := " & g_strPathVCC


-----------------------
In Chinese, "编译器" means compiler, after this alter, I have successfully passes the compiler check.

Is there some way to get the compiler to emit the messages in English? Because there's no way the .vbs script can support all non-English versions of the compiler.

I think the best way is that editing the script like this:

if (InStr(1, g_strShellOutput, "16.") <= 0) _
And (InStr(1, g_strShellOutput, "17.") <= 0) then
'MsgError "The Visual C++ compiler we found ('" & strPathVC & "') isn't 10.0 or 11.0. Check the build requirements."
MsgError "g_strShellOutput is " & g_strShellOutput
exit sub
end if

'
' Ok, emit build config variables.
'
if InStr(1, g_strShellOutput, "16.") > 0 then
CfgPrint "PATH_TOOL_VCC100 := " & g_strPathVCC


------------------------------------------------
We only concerns the version number, not the compiler name in different languages.
