I'm being asked about the msvc build and decided to answer in the list to
keep you all informed on the status.
Today I submitted a non working update to my branch:
useful for reference for those interested in msc builds.
Before I got a svn branch where to commit, I got ntoskrnl built by msvc9 and
booting to desktop,
Based on build 44678. This is not synchable with svn, but I have put it in
my server if someone wants to take a look:
After I got a svn branch, I started to make the same happen without changing
so much. Unfortunately this was in the middle of the trap handling rewrite.
This is being done in a really weird, unportable, hackish and unefficient
and I had a lot of problems to have the port booting. Finally, after much
work than expected, I got the port working but with some weird temporary
hacking I didn't like, and then wanted to sync with more current version,
only to find that the trap handlers were substantially changed again, in an
even more unportable way. So instead of keep debugging and hacking a code
i would pretty much drop at the end, I started rewriting it yesterday and I
expect to have it working in less than a week. This will save efforts at the
Initially I wanted to commit only a working branch, but since it's taking
and other devs may benefit from what's done even if it is not complete,
i decided to have the working not synchable version based on 44678 available
at my server, and the non booting svn branch r45369 commited.
I recommend taking a look at platf.h and cpu-c.h, these files contain
and compiler dependent definitions and macros, that make most inline
and compiler conditionals elsewhere unnecessary.
Hope you find this useful.
