I try to build JDK6.0 for Windows.
I have Visual Studio 6.0 installed, but I cannot find VS6.0 service pack 3. Microsoft does not offer it for download anymore. Is it possible to build using current service pack 6 ?
The VS 6 sp3 is avalaible in the next sites:
I would expect that anything greater than Service Pack 3 should be ok, but I can't guarantee that. You'll just have to give it a try.
If I recall, the reason for the Servive Pack 3 was due to some bug fixes, and I can only assume that Service Pack 6 should be fine with regards to those fixes, but it's hard to know if there isn't some other problem introduced in 4, 5, or 6 that could cause problems.
If you try this, please let us know if it was successful or not.
Is it possible to switch off the C++ compiler/linker version check ? I try to compile with a german version of Visual C++ and the compiler name seems to be internationalized. It differs completely to what the make file requires.
gnumake REQUIRED_CCVER=x.y.z REQUIRED_LINKVER=x.y.z
Where x.y.z is the numeric triple you get when you run 'cl' or 'link' at the command line.
We have an RFE filed to relax these compiler version checks and just issue a warning.
