Using ICE on windows with mingw (codeblocks)

ferrazrafaelferrazrafael Member Rafael FerrazOrganization: Federal University of Ouro PretoProject: MMOG
There is any way to use default windows installer (.msi) of ICE with Mingw (Codeblocks) or I need to recompile ICE entirely?

    Hi Rafael,

    The Ice-3.4.2.msi supports only the C++ compilers listed at ZeroC - Download. You cannot use these binaries with a totally different C++ compiler such as MinGW.

    So, in order to use Ice with MinGW, you need to build Ice with MinGW ... more precisely "port" Ice to MinGW since the Ice 3.4.2 source distribution provides no support for MinGW.

    The next Ice release will include partial support for MinGW - not for C++ development but for Ruby support (the latest Ruby binary distribution for Windows is built with MinGW). This partial support is of course better than no support at all, so you may want to wait a little bit before you start porting Ice 3.4.2 to MinGW.

    Cheers,
    Bernard

    Thanks, seems a reasonable decision support the best compiler on each platform.
