I am trying to install MySQL++ on Windows XP and use it. I was able to install it in Linux because the website:
provided an RPM that built the libraries for you. As far as I can tell, no such thing is supplied for Windows. Supposedly, MySQL++ " works out of the box with Visual C++ 2005 and 2008." (quote from above website). That may be true, but my problem is installing it. From the README file, it says this:
You must build both the Debug and Release versions of the library.
You will need them both because when you build your program in
Release mode, it won't work with a MySQL++ DLL built in Debug mode.
The simplest way to ensure that you're running your program against
the correct DLL is to copy the debug version of the MySQL++ DLL
into your program's Debug build directory, and the same for the
I don't have a clue how to do the top line of this, which appears to be a prerequisite for actually "installing" MySQL++ and running the examples. Has anyone done this successfully? Do they provide some way to "build" these Debug and Release libraries? Like I said, I've gotten it working in Linux, but they provided an rpm to build it there.
Thanks for any guidance. I'm using Visual C++ 2008, the non-Express version.
