Subject: 1.5.2c1 will not compile on Windows NT SP4 with VC++ 6.0 SP1
Message-ID: <>
Content-Length: 1543
X-UID: 348
I extracted the 1.5.2c1 kit into P:\
python15 error
VC++ 6.0 gives this error.
Fatal error C1083: Cannot open source file:
'P:\Python-1.5.2c1\Modules\reopmodule.c': No such file or directory
The file reopmodule.c is not in the kit.
Having removed reopmodule.c from the project I get a link error
LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file ".\PC\python_nt.def"
This file is also missing.
Removing python_nt.def from the project reveals files that need to be added
to the project:
LINK needs winmm.lib added to it.
Now I get a python15 built.
pyhon error
The project cannot find python.c
fatal error C1083: Cannot open source file:
'P:\Python-1.5.2c1\python\Modules\python.c': No such file or directory
There is a extra "python" directory that is not in the kits layout.
Fixed by replacing with 'P:\Python-1.5.2c1\Modules\python.c'
Same path problem with python15.lib.
Fixed by replacing with P:\Python-1.5.2c1\vc40\python15.lib
Now I get a python.exe
The tk and tcl libs are named tk80.lib and tcl80.lib not tk80vc.lib and
I used the Tcl/Tk that the 1.5.2c1 installation put on my system.
Now I have _tkinter.dll
How was the kit for Windows built given all the missing or misnamed files?
Or is this a side effect of using VC++ 6.0?
I also notice that the python.exe was built 8 apr 1999 but report sa dated
of 12 Mar 1999
on the interactive command line.
