Compiling notepad++ with Visual Studio 2015



  • Hi!

    I am an undergraduate student in software engineering. I would like to work on some bugs ans issues on notepad++, the problem is I can’t get the project to compile.

    When I open the visual studio project in PowerEditor\visual.net, visual studio says that the file “fileBrowser.h” is missing, but it is not… I tried removing it from the project and reincluding it, nothing!

    I also get an error message Process.cpp, which “cannot be opened”. What am I doing wrong :o

    Thank you!
    Antoine



  • There were some recent changes made to the code. Since VS 2013 is the “official” build system, only that project was updated. However, there is a pull request that looks like it fixes the VS 2015 project.



  • Thank you! This pull request fixed the compilation errors. I now get a “ScintillaEditView::init : SCINTILLA ERROR - Can not load the dynamic library” exception. Still better than compilation errors ! :)

    Thank you!

  • Don’t forget to copy the SciLexer.dll into the Notepad++ bin directory ;)
