Compiling ScriptBasic for Windows
« on: April 14, 2010, 08:34:45 PM »
This tutorial will be a step-by-step guide to creating a ScriptBasic Windows binary set of executables and DLLs from source. ScriptBasic has only one set of source files for all platforms and some of the extension modules are based on cross platform open source libraries. The C compiler used in this tutorial will be the Microsoft free Visual C++ Toolkit. (VC7) This was the compiler Peter Verhas used to create the 2.1 beta and what Armando used for the final 2.1 ScriptBasic Windows release.

You can download the Visual C++ Toolkit from HERE (ScriptBasic site) or one of the many other sites on the web. This first post will show the C compiler being installed. The next post will be installing the development versions of the open source libraries used with the extension modules. The final post will show you how to compile ScriptBasic source to build the binaries.
