Compile Audacity with Visual Studio 2010

The project Audacity can not be compiled by Visual Studio 2010. The problem seems caused by the conversion of the project solution file from VC++ 2009 to 2010. It seems to complain that the “$ParentName” used in the project files of 2009 is no longer supported by 2010 version, and the conversion process replaced the “$ParentName” with “$ProjectFileName” automatically, which contributed to this compiling problem. Is there a workaround to this problem? Thanks!

Getting Audacity 1.3.12 itself to compile proved to be a bumpy ride. Well audacity can be compiled in VS 2008. & VC 9 It’s absolute fact that Microsoft had decided to hide the compile menu in VS 2010.

Here the step-by-step process on how to compile audacity in VC 9…

I hope this will help you Out a bit… :stuck_out_tongue:
