Assembly errors compiling in msvc v6


#1

I figured I’d follow on from this post over at kvr. Am I right in thinking I should have the processor pack installed for msvc to recognise these assembly instructions?

Yeah, you’ll need the processor pack in VC6, but it’s easy enough to install.


#3

ok, thanks :wink:.

  • Niall.

#4

does this mean that I’m unable to build JUCE with ms visual C++ 6.0 STANDARD EDITION? The processor pack cannot be installed for the standard edition so I guess I’ve just answered my own question…?

This should maybe be mentioned before download?
Any alternative options?

Well done that man, the debug libs compile fine!
Hope there’s no drastic decrease in efficiency without the assembly stuff…
By the way, I like your page! Lots of nice stuff, the links seem reasonably comprehensive (nice to see Pd there!).

Don’t really want to bring this up now, but I do actually get about 600 warnings only on building the Release versions of the JUCE library (with and without unicode), all warnings about things not being inline… any ideas? Anyway, I can carry on with Debug versions for a while yet, just have a feeling they run a lot slower than the release versions!

Thanks again champ.

Yeah, I get them too, although I don’t really know what they mean. I usually just ignore compiler warnings (though it has got me into trouble in the past :oops:) - I haven’t noticed any significant problems with running the release build (with the warnings left in) anyway…

I don’t have any warnings when I do a build - and I have the warning level set to the maximum. Can you tell me what compiler, platform sdk, etc, and an example of one of the warnings?


#9

Certainly!

Compiler: MS Visual C++ 6.0 Standard

Platform SDK: The one for Windows XP service pack 2, downloaded about a week and a half ago… (sorry, have no exact version number cos it’s not installed on my work computer!). HANG ON! I just read something about that one not providing a build environment for XP… I have to admit I’m very confused!#@! took me ages to download, burn, and install those whopping files.

I will get more information to you tomorrow. By the way Jules - I want to congratulate you on a fantastic luverly API that has got me very excited about using C++, looks very nice and easy to use. Going to check out IO latency tonight!
btw: is there any reason the jucedemo slows to a hog when increasing the JUCE image size? no hardware acceleration?
Anyway, thanks loads and loads.

This is the first warning (of 602) I get:

They’re all pretty much the same I think. I’m using VC v6 (professional), although I can’t remember which platform sdk I’m using. I’ve got a feeling I downloaded it some time last year, but I’m not really sure…

Could the warnings just be a result of not having the processor pack installed? (haven’t got round to doing that yet)

  • Niall.

#11

Suppose it could be the processor pack. Obviously the warnings don’t matter, though it’s puzzling why you’d get them.
