Last change on this file since 22919 was 22919, checked in by ak19, 13 years ago

Dr Bainbridge got gssetup.exe (for the export to cdrom installer) to work again for a later version of Visual Studio: now it works with Visual Studio 9 and does not use STLPort anymore. Changed .rc reference to including afxres.h to windows.h in vcinstall.rc, and there were changes to dereferencing File elements in an STL iterator (in fileCopier.cpp). Also needed to change references to unsigned double to double since the former seems to no longer be supported in later versions of Vis Studio.

1COMPILING THE EXPORTED COLLECTION INSTALLER
2-------------------------------------------

4There are two parts to this:
5
6- gssetup.exe, a 32-bit Windows program that is the actual installer
7- setup.exe, a 16-bit Windows program that checks the Windows version and then runs
8 gssetup.exe. On Windows 3.1/3.11 gssetup.exe will be run using Win32s.
9
10Both of these were originally created by George Buchanan on a very old Borland compiler
11that supported 16 bit Windows development. We no longer have such a compiler, so setup.exe
12cannot be recompiled. (The source for it is in the "really-really-old-stuff" directory.)
13
14The gssetup.exe program can be compiled using Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0 on the
15Vista machine as follows:
16[If using Microsoft Visual C++ 4.2 or older, you want to check out an older version
17of gs2-export-cdrom-installer and follow its README instructions.]
