windows service packs

I am using Windows XP Pro with Service Pack 1a (+blaster worm patch). Still I
get error message: SDL.lib : fatal error LNK1106: invalid file or disk full.
HELP! I looked on www.microsoft.com website for updates for MS VC5 but there
weren’t any. HELP. Oh I wish I never sold my VC6 Introductory/Learning edition
CD.

you could always use mingw, its a good free compiler.

It’s GCC/G++ (linux/bsd/etc compiler) ported to windows and works nicely.

there might be a little learning curve for you to figure out how to compile
and everything since it doesnt come with an IDE.

no idea how to help you on your VC problem, sorry ):> ----- Original Message -----

If you need an IDE for windows, then DevCPP from bloodshed software is where
it’s at. GPL and it comes w/ mingw for windows. (Plus a host of other
packages for download, such as SDL and allegro, and Win32GTK+, plus many many

Sounds like a VC problem. VC5 I think had 5 service packs, as did VC6.
The lastest MS compiler is available as a free download now. This is
just the command line tools, no editor etc. Not sure where on their site
it is, but I did download it a few weeks ago, I think I got the link of
Slashdot.

I’ve wanted to use mingw. I have it installed but can’t figure out all the compile options, how to build make files, or how to auto make them (makemake for windows?). For now I am using VC++ because the IDE, however I wouldn’t mind using Jext instead.
Has anyone made a nice faq about using mingw (gcc/make) in windows with all the bells and whistles? I have gcc experience from Solaris but that doesn’t seem too applicable :wink:

I have been using Dev-C++ and MinGW32. I want to start using Visual C++ 5.0 coz
it is the only thing that can compile someone else’s program. I’ve tried
changing it to try and get it working under Dev-C++ but there’s so many errors
and spent more than 2 hours trying to fix them.

Visual C++ is far much better than Dev-C++. It’s faster etc, better debugger,
etc. Damn, I need to get SDL working. Has anyone ever got SDL working under
VC5.0?

well…some people used Dev-C++ w/ mingw.

http://www.bloodshed.net/download.html

i like to use msys myself which is a bash prompt for windows…very cool! (:

it’s got support for makefiles, autoconf, shell scripts etc. ::pitches a
tent:: hahah (;

hope that helps (:> ----- Original Message -----
