    Build from SVN or download a "nightly" build?

    First of all, thank you for making such a great front end - the UI is simple, very functional, and does exactly what I need it to (and nothing more).

    I'm trying to build from the SVN source (to get the latest and greatest), but I'm on Windows 7 (unlike another recent gentoo thread). Can you provide any tips on getting up and running? On Visual Studio 2008 C# Express, I get an error message about being unable to open a project with VB files when I open the solution, and I get runtime errors when building with VS2010 Pro (only .Net 3.5 is installed on the build/target machine).

    Do you have something like a nightly build (I use nightly as a general term - I do not mean to suggest how often there should be new builds - it's your project, so you set the pace!) that provides access to a more recent copy of OpenMobile without getting the compilation working on my machine?

    Thank you very much, and thanks again for the great frontend!

    http://openmobile.sourceforge.net/main/trunk/ Has the latest svn builds. It comes with running an SVN copy where there very well my be bugs at times as it is the in progress version.

    I have not tested OM in VS2010Pro but it compiles and runs just fine on VS2008Pro. I have not tested it with the express version either.
    You can just skip the vb project that's a plugin that you can compile if needed, its not a part of the main program.

    Did you run the EnvironmentSetup.exe that can be found in the trunk\FrontEnd\OpenMobile\bin\Debug folder? This file prepares your database for 32 or 64 bit and should be run if you have not compiled OM on this computer before.
    Failure is not an option...

    I tried once to compile in 2010 Express and got nowhere. I cannot say it was or was not my fault or because of Express.

    I know, that wasn't really much help.

    I am using VS2010 Ultimate and I am still having issues compiling consistently. Again, I am new to this so I am not sure if I am missing some important setting or if it is compatibility issues. If anyone could figure this out would be fantastic!!!

    Its hard as 2010 has new project files so everything would have to be converted. We have talked about doing to project wide at some point in the future but a time has not been picked yet. I would suggest looking at what is stopping framework from compiling and start there. Basically every single other project references it so until it compiles cleanly you will have a nice list of errors.

    For the SVN builds, can you provide some tips on getting things working? My guess is:

    - Uninstall 0.8
    - Extract build to somewhere
    - Run this first
    - Drag and drop .ompkg files from SVN plugin build archive onto installer exe
    - Run OM

    Thanks!

    What you've listed sounds about right.
    Make sure that you add the OMDebug plugin first as this povides debug info for the rest.

    How do you drop the .ompkg file onto the installer exe? I cannot find such a thing in the svn build download...
    Unless you're talking about the one provided in the distribution download /tools...

    You can find (and build) the installer from the svn source or download it from the build farm.
    If you drop a file on the exe it will start the program and pass the filename as a parameter, the installer will then proceed to install this file.
