Re: Building GTK+ 3.0 with Visual Studio 2013

Thanks for your reply, John. I have the problem that GTK drag'n'drop does not work on Windows 7 while Kaspersky Security 2014 or TuneUp Utilities 2014 is running. I just want to debug into the GTK source to see if I can fix it myself... maybe a too ambitious aim.

As I mentioned earlier, building from source isn't something for a beginner. This is especially true if you want to build with VS2013. You need to keep in mind that it isn't simply a matter of building GTK+. You'd also need to build all the libraries on which GTK+ depends, as well as all the libraries on which they depend etc, etc. At the very least you'd need to build:-


but you'd almost certainly need others too - such as sigc++ / pixman / i18n / freetype / gdk-pixbuf and a whole host of others. Having said all that, there's an open-source project called HexChat which looks like it might have been built with VS2013:-

If you visit that page you'll notice that they provide pre-built bundles for x86 and x64. I haven't downloaded them but (hopefully) those bundles would include everything you'll need to get you started. And (BIG BONUS HERE) a few lines further down there's a helpful guide for building the entire GTK+ stack with VS2013 !!

OTOH, most of the official libraries contain VS projects but they're predominantly for VC++ 9 (i.e. Visual Studio 2008). So alternatively, you could download the free version of VS2008 and build with that:-

Good luck !
