Compiling Audacity on vs2008

Permanent link to this post Posted by FTF » Fri Jul 03, 2015 3:36 pm

Hi again

I am following
http://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/Developing_On_Windows

to try to compile Audacity using vs2008, I need to as the program I want to use Audacity in uses vs2008.

However I get a compiler error

24>Project : error PRJ0019: A tool returned an error code from "Copying bug"
24>Project : warning PRJ0018 : The following environment variables were not found:

I have been googling that a bit but did not have success. So my question is if I should use an older version of Audacity that might work better with vs2008 and which version would that be.
I am also running the wxWidgets 2.8.12.

Btw I got the Audacity source from git so its the latest and it builds and runs fine in vs2013 however I need the 2008 version if its possible :)

thanks

Are you sure you are using the "win\audacity-vs2008_OBSOLETE.sln" solution file?

The latest Audacity version that was officially built with VS2008 was 2.0.6:

Thanks Gale :)

Yeap I am using the 2008 sln file from the right path.
I will try the later version and see if that works.

Thanks
