Building Ice with Visual Studio 2015

Visual Studio 2015 was released two days ago, and you may be wondering when you will be able to use this new version with Ice.

We will add full support for Visual Studio 2015 in the upcoming Ice 3.6.1 release, with Visual C++ 2015 (vc140) binaries in the Ice installers for Windows. In the meantime, you can already build Ice 3.6 from sources with Visual Studio 2015 - simply use the ice 3.6 branch and follow our Build Instructions for C++ on Windows.

The Ice Third Party installer released a few weeks ago contains all the third-party libraries you need for this build (they were built with Visual Studio 2015 RC). Likewise, the Ice Builder for Visual Studio already includes support for Visual Studio 2015: you just need to configure Ice home to point to your Ice / Visual Studio 2015 source build.

Cheers,
Bernard
