RE: Using gtkmm with Visual Studio 2008 Express Edition

Hello again,

For those who may encounter the same problem, somebody provided me with the solution.

First, you will have to download the three following dlls:
- msvcm80d.dll,
- msvcp80d.dll,
- msvcr80d.dll.

Then, you will have to create a file named Microsoft.VC80.DebugCRT.manifest containing:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<!-- Copyright © 1981-2001 Microsoft Corporation -->
<assembly xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1" manifestVersion="1.0">
    <file name="msvcr80d.dll"/>
    <file name="msvcp80d.dll"/>
    <file name="msvcm80d.dll"/>

Finally, copy these four files in the ...\GTK\bin directory. You should be able to use gtkmm in debug mode with Visual Studio 2008.

Best regards,

I am quoting a previous mail from Zdravko Monov :
"I decided to try the cross-platform compatibility of Gtkmm...
I followed your guide for MVC++, except that I have the 2008 version. I tried the hello-world application, which compiles fine. However, trying to run it in debug mode issues:
gtkmm_test.exe - Application Error
The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0150002). Click OK to terminate the application."

I encountered exactly the same problem. I installed and run Dependency walker ( I learnt that in the debug version, gtkmm uses dlls coming with Visual Studio 2005 (MSVCP80D.DLL, MSVCR80D.DLL, ...). I tried to install these dlls but eventually failed to solve the problem.

My questions are the followings:
1) Is it possible to avoid these problems without coming back to Visual Studio 2005 ? I think so since the release version works fine, but how ?
2) Is a package for Visual Studio 2008 planned in a close future ?

Thanks in advance,
Best regards,
