Look in the suggestions section for my bit about Utilituy toolbar(PLEASE include it!) :D
That is the very problem. The project is open source, and meant to be compiled with as little other tools/libraries etc as possible. That is why they state C/C++, not win32 binaries. Even while in win32 it can matter if it is a win32, MFC, etc.
Might look at Lazarus. It's an open-source implementation of Delphi 6.

http://mupdf.com/ is an open Source, written in C pdf and xps viewer.

This could be a good startingpoint for an own version of %system32%\xpsrchvw.exe which also has the bonus of reading pdf documents.

already tested in ReactOS, but only with a PDF because I don't have an xps file

EDIT: XPS also works great.

No screenshot.No life :p
Btw, it opens: JPEG, TIFF, PNG.
It could be nice to have its engine pluged into our ReactOS Viewer :p

We only need the xps printer deriver to work in order to run visual studio 2008/2010 :)

Project for that week.... adding some of that stuff in here to Rapps ^^ After r60000 I have a Database update ready to commit already anyway.

ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

Eh, I don't get it. If the goal is to have PDF/XPS support build-in then may be. But if it is only to have a viewer, then SumatraPDF, already mentioned somewhere in this thread, is a much better choice: it support more formats, such as DejaVu or CBx, have more active development and faster bug fixes.

the engine itself is platform independent and for every os there is a dedicated frontend.
The Windows one is written in WinAPI if I read this Code correct: http://mupdf.com/docs/browse/platform/x11/win_main.c

I think it is MFC. One thing is sure: it is Win32-only, but can also be compiled 64-bits.

Yes, and they send patches upstream, but the GUI/front-end is completely custom and Windows-oriented.

I do not know if anyone else has suggested this or a programme like it, but here goes:
WGrep
Code license GNU GPL v2
Wgrep is a windowed grep tool.

For more information, see:http://jean.daniel.michaud.googlepages.com/wgrep
It is coded in C++ (and Ros does have some C++ code in it), as are the third party libraries that it uses (Boost, XmlRpc++).

Boost (http://www.boost.org/) provides free peer-reviewed portable C++ source libraries. (It's own open source license).

XmlRpc++ (http://xmlrpcpp.sourceforge.net/) is a C++ implementation of the XML-RPC protocol. (GNU LGPL).

It is a stand alone programme, but it is released under the GPL2 license, so it could be used as a reference or a starting point for the search function which is not yet implemented in Ros.

And this is another one released under the GNU GPL v2, which may be a better choice, for the suggested use, as above.
https://code.google.com/p/grepwin/

I have down-loaded it and used it (see this post viewtopic.php?f=2&t=10972&p=104893#p104893).
Please keep the Windows classic (9x/2000) look and feel.
The layman's guides to - debugging - bug reporting - compiling - with some complementary scripts.
They may help you with a problem, so do have a look at them.

UQM does not seem to work on 3.15, at least, not the HD version. (I remember 3.14 ran the non-HD version just fine, though).

A PDF (but not only) printer is more important than viewer, IMHO.
PDFlite is based on Sumatra (which is based on mupdf) and have a PDF printer too.

Virtual Image Printer driver seems cool too.

Anyway, as i always suggested, it's time to involve 3rd party open source devs for these "extensions" !

Here's results of "driver for Windows" @ sf.net:

I believe that many of them could be interested in a collaboration with the ROS project...

In progress we (always) trust.
