Building VirtualBox OSS with VS 2008?

Postby rsilvergun » 27. Mar 2009, 04:40

Hi all,
I have Visual Studio 2008, but not 2003 or 2005. I know building Virtual Box isn't supported with 2008, but will it work (and how much trouble is it to make it work)? Anyone know a guide? I searched around but haven't found anyone who's done it.

Ah well, pity there isn't a readily available OSS windows binary. I've found one, but it's a debug version so I get an ugly black debug box running it :lol:

Thanks all!

Here is what I did. It's rather ugly but it seems to work.

in Makefile.kmk change

Thanks! That got me much futher. I got this running kmk:

Z:/src/VirtualBox-2.1.4_OSE/src/VBox/Main/webservice/Makefile.kmk:82: VBOX_PATH_GSOAP not found...
Z:/src/VirtualBox-2.1.4_OSE/kBuild/units/qt3.kmk:186: kBuild: Couldn't find the Qt3 headers and libaries...

kmk: Interrupt/Exception caught (code = 0xc0000005, addr = 0x417f14)

I googled the QT error and found I could add this to Config.kmk:

PATH_SDK_QT3=C:/Program Files/qt-win-free-msvc.net2003-3.3.3

and I no longer get the QT errors, but I still get:

Z:/src/VirtualBox-2.1.4_OSE/src/VBox/Main/webservice/Makefile.kmk:82: VBOX_PATH_GSOAP not found...
Z:/src/VirtualBox-2.1.4_OSE/kBuild/footer.kmk:3118: Malformed target-specific variable definition
kmk: Interrupt/Exception caught (code = 0xc0000005, addr = 0x417f14)

I'm running the build from the Visual Studio Command Prompt. Here's my configure.vbs line:

cscript configure.vbs --with-MinGW=z:\src\ --with-libSDL=z:\src\SDL-1.2.13 --with-qt="c:\Program Files\qt-win-free-msvc.net2003-3.3.3" --with-libxml2=z:\src\libxml2-2.6.30.win32\ --with-libxslt=Z:\src\libxslt-1.1.24.win32\

The output was fine:

I ran env.bat & kmk & then get the error from kmk. I can't figure out if I did something dumb or if it's because I'm trying to use VS 2008 though.

You need to install gsoap. The latest version did not work for me (and others, see this post http://vbox.innotek.de/pipermail/vbox-dev/2009-February/001116.html)

On ward and Upward!

Thanks for the tip, I got past the gsoap error (I had to hardcode the path to my install in the Make file though). The core dump was caused by SDL. As far as I can tell SDL is only needed for one of the front ends so I'm just leaving it off for now.

I then ran into this:

C:\WINDDK\3790~1.183\inc\ddk\wnet\ntddk.h(230) : error C2733: second C linkage of overloaded function '_interlockedbittestandset' not allowed
C:\WINDDK\3790~1.183\inc\ddk\wnet\ntddk.h(227) : see declaration of '_interlockedbittestandset'

But a forum post here: http://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=15256&p=63681&hilit=second+C+linkage+of+overloaded+function#p63681 had the answer.

I think for VBox the 2003 PSDK should be used. In my Autoconfig.kmk is a line
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
MAIN_IDL = E:/VBox/trunk/tools/win.x86/sdk/2003R2/bin/Midl.exe
. So I assume that midl.exe is used from 2003 PSDK in my configuration

I found the trouble, it was just a path issue in Autoconfig.kmk, I was pointing to the wrong SDK after all. I can't find a workable QT binary though and I'll be darned if I can get QT compiled. I have qt-win-free-msvc.net2003-3.3.3, and configure.vbs recognizes it but then kmk blows up:

Building qt's a pain, so I'm trying to track down a binary package that makes VirtualBox happy.

Building qt's a pain, so I'm trying to track down a binary package that makes VirtualBox happy.

I built a SVN version of VBox. Only Qt4 was required. Building Qt4 took a long time but worked w/o problems.
You can create an empty file `Z:/src/VirtualBox-2.1.4_OSE/src/VBox/Additions/WINNT/Installer/Makefile.kmk'. The installer is not part of OSE.
I do not think the PATH_SDK_LIBSDL problem is VS2008 specific. My AutoConfig.kmk contains
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
PATH_SDK_LIBSDL       := E:/VBox/trunk/tools/win.x86/libsdl/v1.2.13

E:/VBox/trunk/tools/win.x86/libsdl/v1.2.13 contains \include and \lib

Re: Building VirtualBox OSS with VS 2008?

I found out a bug in Visual Studio 2008 was holding up my compile. Parenthesis in your PATH statement break the VS2008 command line, and the Directx SDK had parenthesis. I removed them and got qt 4.4.3 to compile. I used some hacks from here:

http://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=14202 to get configure.vbs to find qt and got further still.

I'm stuck now on two files:

c:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\include\intrin.h
z:\src\VirtualBox-2.1.4_OSE\include\iprt\asm.h

intrin.h causes this error:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
C:\PROGRA~1\MICROS~1.0\VC\include\intrin.h(1040) : error C2733: second C linkage of overloaded function '_interlockedbittestandset' not allowed

C:\PROGRA~1\MICROS~1.0\VC\include\intrin.h(1041) : error C2733: second C linkage of overloaded function '_interlockedbittestandreset' not allowed
        C:\PROGRA~1\MICROS~1.0\VC\include\intrin.h(1041) : see declaration of '_interlockedbittestandreset'
kmk.exe[2]: *** [Z:/src/VirtualBox-2.1.4_OSE/out/win.x86/release/obj/VBoxCOM/glue/initterm.obj] Error 2


From what I've read the problem is the Microsoft DDK includes the two declairations as well. The solution is to comment out these two lines:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
1040: __MACHINEI(unsigned char _interlockedbittestandset(long volatile *a, long volatile b))
1041: __MACHINEI(unsigned char _interlockedbittestandreset(long volatile *a, long volatile b


But doing so causes this error in asm.h:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
Z:\src\VirtualBox-2.1.4_OSE\include\iprt/asm.h(81) : warning C4164: '_interlockedbittestandset' : intrinsic function not declared

Z:\src\VirtualBox-2.1.4_OSE\include\iprt/asm.h(5318) : error C3861: '_interlockedbittestandset': identifier not found
Z:\src\VirtualBox-2.1.4_OSE\include\iprt/asm.h(5412) : error C3861: '_interlockedbittestandreset': identifier not found


because asm.h is looking for the functions.

I tried adding the lines to asm.h but got

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
Z:\src\VirtualBox-2.1.4_OSE\include\iprt/asm.h(42) : error C3646: '__MACHINEI' : unknown override specifier

and I don't know enough C/C++ to sort out why. I now understand why this guy

http://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=15256&p=63681&hilit=second+C+linkage+of+overloaded+function#p63681

was going back and forth from intrin.h and ntddk.h, but I don't know how to sort things our so VirtualBox can find what it needs.

From what I've read the problem is the Microsoft DDK includes the two declairations as well.

I "solved" this by removing "volatile" from the declarations in intrin.h

Thank you! I am an idiot. I had tried that, but it didn't seem to work. What I didn't realize is it did work, I just ran into yet another error, a pretty spectacular one at that:

Re: Building VirtualBox OSS with VS 2008?

Did anyone ever succeed in getting the current VBox OSE to compile under Visual Studio 2008? I'm doing it inside a VBox VM btw, it means I can have a dedicated setup for building VBox, once I get it to work.

Following the recommendations given here I've managed to get pretty far, for example I fixed the "_interlockedbittestandset" problem by finding all occurrences of that function everywhere inside the guest and making sure they are all consistent.

I've hit what sounds like a similar problem with _vsnprintf. Error message is "error C3163: '_vsnprintf': attributes inconsistent with previous declaration", error in "\MSVS9\VC\Include\stdio.h" - this stops the build. Trouble is that if I search for this one I get an awful lot of hits (lots of places I think do define vsnprintf _vsnprintf), so I haven't been able to find the previous conflicting declaration.

Never mind, I found a workaround: contrary to the advice given above I found it easier - for now - to leave all the package header files untouched (don't comment out any defines of vsnprintf they might have) - instead just comment out the declaration of vsnprintf on line 350 of stdio.h.

I'm on to a new problem now: "Sorry_Cannot_Find_The_Midl_Compiler_In_The_PSDK", even though I think the platform folder is correct and the "midl.exe" file is right there. I've tried searching the kmk files to find out where this error is generated, but no luck so far. As far as I can tell this used to be in makefile.kmk, but doesn't seem to be there any more, or in any other kmk file I've checked.

Ok, I made some progress on this.

First off I can tell you that XP's file search is a piece of s**t. I told it to search all files in the VBox folder tree for occurrences of "Sorry_Cannot" - and the stupid cute dog found no matches. I tried again with the full string - no matches. I then tried an old 16bit search utility that I wrote myself about twenty years ago and still have tucked away in an old utils folder - it found a quick match in a kmk file in the root folder but crashed when the path lengths got too long. Unfortunately source code for this util was lost a long time ago, so today I rewrote it from scratch as a Windows console app, ran it and success! Three matches found for "Sorry_Cannot".

The first wasn't relevant (it was about Cannot_Find_Mc).

The second was the one that was causing the error, this was in "<root>\src\VBox\HostDrivers\VBoxNetFlt\Makefile.kmk",which contains the lines :-
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
VBOXNETFLT_NOTIFY_IDL      ?= $(EXEC_X86_WIN32) $(call VBOX_FN_MAKE_WIN_PATH,$(firstword $(wildcard \
   $(PATH_SDK_WINPSDK_BIN)/Midl.Exe\
   $(PATH_SDK_WINPSDK)/Bin/Midl.Exe\
   $(PATH_DEVTOOLS)/win.x86/bin/midl.exe\
   ) Sorry_Cannot_Find_The_MIDL_Compiler_In_The_PSDK))


Which I commented out and replaced with :-
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
VBOXNETFLT_NOTIFY_IDL      ?= $(EXEC_X86_WIN32) $(call VBOX_FN_MAKE_WIN_PATH,$(VBOX_MAIN_IDL))


Which allows the build to make some progress.

The third occurrence of "Sorry_Cannot" was in "<root>\src\VBox\Main\Makefile.kmk" and also relates to the midl compiler. This wasn't the immediate cause of the error message, but I don't know if the build had gotten to this bit yet - so I may eventually have to make the same change here as well. Btw I don't understand kmk syntax so couldn't see what was wrong with the existing lines.


The build now fails with a whole slew of errors attempting to compile "src\VBox\Main\win\NetIf-win.cpp". I've not had a close look yet, but the error messages seem to indicate that the code is dereferencing fields of a structure pointer - but the compiler is complaining that it isn't a structure pointer.

And that last error is because the platform SDK that ships with VS2008 needs a macro defined - NTDDI_VERSION. Some structures in "iptypes.h" are wrapped in conditional compiles with no default! The macro must be defined.
