Build process

The source supplied in this SDK includes MAKEFILEs for use with the Microsoft NMAKE utility. You run the utility from a command prompt. The client-side virtual driver is not designed to be built using the visual interface of Microsoft Visual C/C++, or with the visual interface of Visual Studio. See the Microsoft documentation for details about NMAKE.

You can build both server and client examples for Win32 at one time using the supplied batch file src\examples\vc\buildit.bat.

Compiled object files are placed in the obj\retail subfolder of the platform folder; for example, win32\obj\retail.

The components can also be built with debugging information turned on. The output directory changes to obj\debug for debug objects.
