Building Berkeley DB on Windows - 07-01-2009 , 09:40 PM
Berkeley DB provides Visual C++ 6 project files for Windows. I'm
working on a script that will automate the BerkeleyDB build process.
However, there are very limiting options for converting DSP files to
VCPROJ files from the command line. VCBUILD can be used to only

Studio IDE, it all works fine. I suspect this is because there is no
SLN file until I open it in visual studio, and the working directory
used to find the include directories is based on the location of the

line in Windows? NMAKE scripts would be wonderful, but I don't see any
support for those.
