Re: [xml] Using LIBXML2 in Windows environment


I am using that same version of libxml2 with Visual Studio 2013 update 3. We build on Windows Server 2008 R2, 
or Windows 7, but I doubt that the operating system matters much.

Your command line below would not be enough to build the file. You need to provide the include path, and 
provide the link parameters to the libxml2 distribution.

I built your referenced example using a simple Visual Studio win32 project.

Thanks for your help.

I am using a Windows 8.1, 64bit computer with libxml2 from this file: in a command prompt.

I would like to compile this program:

I have used "cl reader1.c" at the command prompt and I get this output:

C:\GNU COBOL 2.0\Projects\libxml2>cl reader1.c Microsoft (R) C/C++ Optimizing Compiler Version 18.00.30723 
for x86 Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation.  All rights reserved.

reader1.c(2) : error C2143: syntax error : missing '{' before ':'
reader1.c(2) : error C2059: syntax error : ':'
reader1.c(12) : warning C4138: '*/' found outside of comment C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio

reader1.c(15) : fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file:
'libxml/xmlreader.h': No such file or directory

C:\GNU COBOL 2.0\Projects\libxml2>

Any help that you can provide to compile this program would be gratefully appreciated.

Libxml2 works quite well in Windows, and can readily be compiled with Visual Studio 2013. Can you be more 
specific about where you are running into problems? If you want assistance, it would also be useful to know 
whether you are attempting to build a 32-bit or 64-bit version.

| Hello Eric.
| Thanks for your help.
| I am not using MinGW or Cygwin.  I am using Microsoft Visual Studio 
| 2013.
| From what you pointed out in the readme.txt file, I will not be using 
| this version of LIBXML2.
| I did try LIBXML2 from "" and have other 
| unresolvable issues.
| I guess this package does not work in windows.
| Thanks,
| Tony
