Help needed, VS2017 build fail.

Post by humble »

Hi,

I try to build with "configure.cmd VSSolution" and "msbuild REACTOS.sln"
The build fail with
Done Building Project "C:\path\to\reactos\output-vs-i386-sln\REACTOS.sln" (default targets) -- FAILED.
Build FAILED.
There are many other errors, among them are link error such as
LINK: fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file 'C:/path/to/reactos/output-vs-i386-sln/dll/apisets/Debug'...
...LNK2019: unresolved external symbol __chkstk referenced in function...

How do I go about troubleshooting this? I am using the Developer Command Prompt for VS 2017 from VS2017 Build Tools running on a 32 bit Windows 7.

Thanks.

VSSolution build is not maintained as carefully as the other build types. It's recommended to use Ninja to build instead, and only use the VS project files for editing.
That said, do make sure you're using ReactOS's cmake (cmake --version should return "3.2.1-ReactOS"), that will make a big difference for VSSolution.
