Thought I'd have a look at the newest ren-c, but I tried and failed to build on VS 2019. Wondering if builds with Visual Studio 2019 should be working or if that's on hold for now?
If it's on hold until a request, don't spend a lot of time trying to get it working for just me as my immediate interest and priority now is in end user business tools and integration for myself and my wife rather than language work per se. I.e web api's and vb.net because I need whip up things in languages I'm familiar with to get things done with little time.
What I did:
Copied r3-windows-x86-8994d23.exe to ./prebuilt
Installed VS C++ tools (clicked the box that looked right).
Run a command file with the following:
call "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\Community\VC\Auxiliary\Build\vcvars64.bat"
"%R3_MAKE%" ../make.r config: ../configs/vs2019-x64.r debug: asserts optimize: 2
What I got was:
... Dynamic extensions ** Script Error: generate has no value ** Where: switch for-each do catch either else _ do ** Near: [rebmake visual-studio ~~ generate (x86)] ** File: ../make.r ** Line: 871
Then I changed the line in make for the vs2019 target from:
rebmake/visual-studio/generate/(x86) output-dir solution
rebmake/makefile/generate/(x86) output-dir solution
and got a different error, so then I thought I'd ask here, since I'm clueless about compiling with C, C++.
