ported to VisualStudio 2005

Hi all,

as I needed the OpenCascade library compiled with VC8
I had to port the 7.1 solutions to the new format. I also
fixed the lib and dll names for the debug build (all
libs and dll's end with "D" as it is common practice.
Another nice side-effect is that you can run debug and
release builds without messing around with the path,
the debug build just links to the debug dll's which have a
different name!). I zipped the ros\adm\win32 directory with
the VC8 solutions and put it on our web-site:


I used the OpenCascade 6.2 version. It would be nice if
that could be inserted into a future release, at it was
a major pain modifying all the projects :-)

Hope it can be useful, kind regards,

Thank you for sharing.

Since OpenCascade is open source, can't they put them into SVN like other Open Source projects?

...and separate out the binaries at the same time.

Dear Antonio,

thanks a lot for sharing. Did you also manage to convert any of the samples or the makeBottle tutorial to take advantag of the Windows Forms 2.0 library?

Best regards, Recage

Replying with some delay....

No I didn't ;) I just needed the dll's to link with
my program so I did not look into the samples at all.
