This RFC updates MapGuide to support Visual Studio 2015.


Supporting the new Visual Studio 2015 will allow a developer to take advantage of the IDE improvements.

Proposed Solution

  • All solution and project files in the trunk will be upgraded to Visual Studio 2015 format.
  • All code will be recompiled and code changes made as appropriate.
  • All unit tests will be run and must pass before the above changes can be submitted.
  • We will add configurations such as 'Release(v140)' and 'Debug(v140)' which use platform toolset v140 for those who need to build v140 versions of files. And the project properties for output, intermediate and lib directories will include and $(Configuration) macros. Example: the intermediate directory of ServerCore will be changed to ..\..\obj\$(Configuration)\ServerCore.

Test Plan

Build/Run on Windows and Linux.
