Running configure.cmd under RosBE environment will create only the output folder relative to MingW and not for VS or WDDK(even if you speciify the parameter VSSolution). I'm not accustomed to the content of configure.cmd but if you look at it you will discover that it performs some sort of check of the environment where it was launched.
Please document everything you can on the Wiki. When you start off fresh, you can easily make a step by step tutorial on how to do everything you've learned, bu as time goes on, you take certain knowledge for granted that a brand new developer might not know.
Specifically any tutorials for how to get the build environment set up and build ReactOS (step by step with pics would be awesome, you could even put it together in a word document or something and I'll do it for you).
I'm doing some test on notepad just to have some confidence with the compilation and testing of ros. I've added two files (.h and .c) to the notepad project. I guess I have to 'refresh' the makefile in order to the compiler to see the new files. Is there a way to do that via cmake? Or do I have to recreate the output folder?
You can that in this way: - edit the CMakeLists.txt file inside the project folder. - modify the "list(..)" directive as you need. - modify the library list as you need - save and exit - when you will launch the make [ProjectName], cmake will do the update.
