Bonjour, When first compiling, I had those messages : 1) WARNING : c:\temp\par-packer-1.003\myldr\env.c(68) : warning C4996: 'strnicmp' was declared deprecated C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\INCLUDE\string.h(215) : see declaration of 'strnicmp' Message: 'The POSIX name for this item is deprecated. Instead, use the ISO C++ conformant name: _strnicmp. See online help for details.' This warning appears VERY frequently, and for all those functions : strdup, strtok, sprintf, strncpy ... To have this (harmless) warning go away, just add -D_CRT_SECURE_NO_DEPRECATE in the compiler options. 2) COMPILATION ERROR : main.c(115) : error C2143: syntax error : missing ';' before 'type' main.c(116) : error C2065: 'argno' : undeclared identifier NMAKE : fatal error U1077: '"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\BIN\cl.EXE"' : return code '0x2' Stop. This error is due to the declaration int argno = 0; coming after conditionally compilated non-declaration code The error disappears if the declaration is moved just immediately after the beginning of main definition, as : int main ( int argc, char **argv, char **env ) { int exitstatus; int i; int argno = 0; 3) LINK ERROR : link main.obj my_par_pl.obj win32.obj -release -nologo -nodefaultlib -debug -opt:ref,icf -libpath:"C:\Perl\lib\CORE" -machine:x86 C:\Perl\lib\CORE\perl510.lib "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\LIB\oldnames.lib" "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\LIB\kernel32.lib" "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\PlatformSDK\lib\user32.lib" "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\PlatformSDK\lib\gdi32.lib" "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\PlatformSDK\lib\winspool.lib" "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\PlatformSDK\lib\comdlg32.lib" "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\PlatformSDK\lib\advapi32.lib" "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\PlatformSDK\lib\shell32.lib" "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\PlatformSDK\lib\ole32.lib" "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\PlatformSDK\lib\oleaut32.lib" "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\PlatformSDK\lib\netapi32.lib" "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\LIB\uuid.lib" "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\PlatformSDK\lib\ws2_32.lib" "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\PlatformSDK\lib\mpr.lib" "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\PlatformSDK\lib\winmm.lib" "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\PlatformSDK\lib\version.lib" "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\PlatformSDK\lib\odbc32.lib" "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\PlatformSDK\lib\odbccp32.lib" "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\PlatformSDK\lib\comctl32.lib" "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\LIB\msvcrt.lib" -out:par.exe main.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol _strcasecmp referenced in function _par_mktmpdir par.exe : fatal error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals NMAKE : fatal error U1077: '"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\BIN\link.EXE"' : return code '0x460' Stop. Apparently strcasecmp in unknown to Microsoft Visual C V8. Sounds strange, but real. The solution is to modify the file mktmpdir.c in myldr folder as follows : Add the following block just after the first line in mktmpdir.c : #ifdef _MSC_VER #define snprintf _snprintf #if _MSC_VER < 1500 #define vsnprintf _vsnprintf #else #define ssize_t SSIZE_T #define uint32_t UINT32 #endif #define strncasecmp _strnicmp #define strcasecmp _stricmp #else #ifdef __MINGW32__ #define WINSOCK_VERSION MAKEWORD(2,0) #else #define strncasecmp strnicmp #define strcasecmp stricmp #endif /* __MINGW32__ */ #endif /* _MSC_VER */ This block has been taken verbatim from libxml2, and in particular, I have absolutely no ideas if it is necessary nor working for MINGW32. It should work for Visual Studio 2008. my compiler version : Show quoted text
