Getting Error while trying to generate SciLexer.dll without boost for Notepad++ 7.6.2



  • I’m a beginner trying to generate local Notepad-plus-plus exe file using source code.
    I’m able to generate Notepad++.exe using visual Studio 2017, but unable to generate SciLexer.dll file.

    It might be a silly thing that I’m missing, but at my current level I’m unable to figure Out.

    Thanks in advance. 👍

    While trying to generate SciLexer.dll without boost:
    I’m getting the below error:
    C:\sources\notepad-plus-plus-7.6.2\scintilla\win32>nmake NOBOOST=1 DEBUG=1 -f scintilla.mak

    not sure if this can be done easily with out modifying the npp source code.
    For example you still generate

    \BoostRegexSearch.obj
