Visual Studio 2015 Express

Post by paul.rosen » Sun Oct 18, 2015 12:04 am

I wanted to build Audacity with ASIO so I downloaded Visual Studio Express, but the only version I could find was 2015. While everything worked, I did need to find and remove macro definitions of snprintf from the widgets and also from a few of the Audacity libraries. One of the libraries, I think it was lv2, had it defined both in header files and in Visual Studio project files. So heads-up.

There's a link to the recommended VS 2013 on the "Developing on Windows" page in the wiki:
