MS Visual C++ 2012 SDK might be already mature enough and lots of libraries are being built with this version these days. Its support for C++11 is also supposedly better so lets try it. This is not a review. Only a simple “how to” about installing and troubleshooting. (more…)
Let’s say you need to compile your C++ project under MS Windows and you need to use the Microsoft’s toolchain instead of MinGW. Buying the whole Visual Studio is not necessary. I like a simple combination gvim+scons+gcc which gives me a high amount of flexibility. I just needed to switch the gcc to the MS compiler.
