Check the build.bat in the skin/Project Mayhem III folder.

That builds Textures.xpr, and it is called from the usual build.bat.

Perhaps some path issue is screwing up - I'm not that hot on batch files Tongue

Cheers,

Thanks. It seems that my original post is beeing eaten up :confused2:

I checkeg build.bat from the skin folder and it says
xcopy "media\Textures.xpr" "BUILD\Project Mayhem III\media\" /Q /I /Y Frown
I'd really appreciate a built textures.xpr...

Try reading it in a bit more detail.

It clearly builds it before it gets tot he xcopy (note the XBMCTex line above)

Question  CVS Complie Query
Post: #188
Hi there, apologies in advance if this post is in the wrong place (I was going to place it in the developer section but it says its for programmers only, which I'm not, at least not of any great skill ) but I wasn't sure where to ask.
I want to complile the latest XMBC CVS using XBMC_SVN_171207 as the build I have is unstable and I suspect whomever compiled it may have customised it slightly, contributing to its instability.
My question is do I need to use Visual Studio 2003 with XDK5778/5849 or can it be compiled with Visual Studio 2008 using XDK5933?

Thanks in advance Smile

This may be a totally stupid and futile question, but is there any chance of getting this to build using a NEWER version of VS?

Nevermind I found the answer to my own question in the Wiki. No, it isn't possible. Unfortunately since the two version of VC that I have are the old VS 6, and the newest VS, i'm pretty much screwed on helping out there I guess.

2008 should build XBMC_PC (probably with modifications) and XBMC_Linux for win32 just fine. You just can't build for xbox with 2008.

Yes you need Visual Studio 2003 to compile XBMC for Xbox, but you can use XDK 5933 (with Visual Studio 2003 that is).

You could install Windows under a VMware vertual machine to compile in there, (or you could compile XBMC for Windows or Linux instead).

Are the steps to build XBMC_Linux for win32 documented anywhere? Thanks in advance.

Load the solution in tools/Win32.

Grab SDL libs and setup path in Visual Studio to point to them.

Build.

Fix errors Wink
