Visual Studio C++ Express 2010
« on: April 22, 2010, 08:44:01 PM »
Hi All

Recently Microsoft upgraded the Visual Studio Express version from VS C++ 2008 to VS C++ 2010.

It has been found that this can no longer convert the VS 6.0 project. However it was possible to convert the project from VS C++ 2008 to VS C++ 2010.

The following are temporary VS 2010 projects:

COLDFIRE - http://www.uTasker.com/temp/uTaskerV1-4.vcxproj.zip
AVR32 - http://www.uTasker.com/temp/AVR32_uTaskerV1-4.vcxproj.zip

Simply copy the content to the simulator directory and double click on the file uTaskerV1-4.vcxproj. This will start VS C++ 2010 and open the project, which can then be build and executed.

Regards

Mark

Are there any notable improvements from 2008 to 2010, as it pertains to the uTasker project?  Or is this just another upgrade from MS, that isn't super relevant?

Hi Aaron

I have only verified that the project works. I didn't check to see what benefits the newer version VS C++ 2010 has to offer - probably there are lots of new things but possibly not relevant when using it to run the project.

The most important thing about this is however that VS 2008 is no longer available as Express download version, which means that any new users who don't already have VS C++ will need to be able to at least start with the newest version, which fortunately seems to work as expected.

Regards

Mark

Thanks Mark, I think you pointed out the most important reason for supporting it (2008 no long being available).

Hi Mark / Aaron,

I've just managed to download the old 2008 version of Visual Studio C++ Express - go to the 2010 download page

http://www.microsoft.com/express/Downloads/#2010-Visual-CPP

There's a set of 3 links underneath the Downloads - Visual Studio 2010 Express, SQL Server 2008 R2 Express, Visual Studio 2008 Express

Clicking on the 2008 one takes you to

http://www.microsoft.com/express/Downloads/#%20

Where there's a link for the 2008 express edition.

HTH
