Compiling Audacity on vs2008

Hi again

I am following

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 :slight_smile:


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 :slight_smile:

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