Sorry to intrude in this very exclusive coder circle (I’m only a hobbyist), but I need some advice: I’m switching from Delphi to C++, trying to do some VST plugs. I was used to Borland, but after days of frustration trying CBuilder to complile using VSTGUI, I started trying other compilers, like Dev-C++, and the Introductory version of MCVC I have. I ended up downloading the VisualC++2005 Express compiler, which looks nice, and in the process came across JUCE, and want to give it a try.
I downloaded the latest Platform SDK, but didn’t find anything like “the Microsoft SDK” as mentioned in the JUCE documentation. Nevertheless, after figuring out how to set up the searchpaths in VCExpress (now isn’t that ridiculous, having to edit manually some definitions file, AND delete a .dat somewhere else after each edit else the changes are not taken into account :evil: ), I got rid of most of the errors and JUCE lib now compiles with only 1 error: missing dsound.h.
ModulR mentions a “missing files” pack but the link seems dead. I’d prefer not to download and install another 200MB (I had XP SP1 , so downloaded SP2, all the MS updates, the Platform SDK, VCExpress and docs, I’m getting tired), so is there a possibility somewhere to get this file, or to get the JUCE libs to compile without it and still being able to link against JUCE lib without unresolved externals?
PS I do insist I’m a hobbyist coder, so I need to be walked through very often…I change from Delphi to C++, from Borland to MS, fromVSTGUI to JUCE, so please be indulgent…
