This RFC updates MapGuide to support Visual Studio 2010.
Supporting the new Visual Studio 2010 will allow a developer to take advantage of the IDE improvements.
- In order to support Visual Studio 2010 new solution and project files will need to be added.
- The Visual Studio 2010 solution files use the same extension as those used by Visual Studio 2008 and so new filenames will need to be used.
- The project files used by Visual Studio 2010 have a "vcxproj" extension which is different than Visual Studio 2008 and so the filenames will only differ by the extension.
- The proposed new Visual Studio 2010 solution filenames will add "_vs10" to the already existing solution filenames. Example: server_vs10.sln
The existing Visual Studio 2008 support will not be changing. Changes to solution files and project files would require that both sets be maintained.
Build/Run on Windows.
Supplied by Autodesk.
The project files used by Visual Studio 2010 will use the VC100 compiler/linker and the project files used by Visual Studio 2008 will be kept and still use the VC90 compiler/linker.
