Building svn-1.1.0 on MS VC++.NET 2003

Hi all,

I thought I'd have a patch to post, but instead it's just a hazard

I am building svn-1.1.0-rc3 on VC++.NET 2K3. VC is mostly able to import
the .dsp/.dsw and build svn, but there is one issue I had to fix:

Microsoft unhelpfully changed the resource compiler from VC++ 6 to
VC++.NET such that it no longer accepts preprocessor definitions that
include a double=quoted string.

Example, from svnadmin, is like this:


This compiles on VC++ 6 RC but not on VC++.NET 2003 RC. The resource
compiler emits the unhelpful message "invalid usage". :)

Changing it to this:


compiles on VC++.NET 2003 RC, but not VC++ 6 RC.

These preprocessor definitions exist in the emitted dsps for all of the
command-line tools (svn, svnadmin, svndumpfilter, svnlook, svnserver,
svnversion), so if you run across this problem, you'll need to update
all of these project files.

So I was going to patch the script that emits the .dsps to emit single
quotes, but that doesn't work on VC++ 6, which is really what the .dsps
are targeted to. So instead, I will just report this problem I worked
around. Hopefully it will help somebody else.
