Visual C++ 2008 Build from trunk

I’m trying to build the sources from the svn trunk using VC2008, and I’m running into some problems. First, I have no idea what the configure project is for, and it fails with a manifest related error (the project lacks any .c* files anyway). This causes an avalanche of problems, initiated by TableGen not being able to build. Has anyone been successful in getting the LLVM libs to build under VC?

Yes, trunk built cleanly out of the box for me under VC2005 as of last week. I haven't tried VC2008.

I had also this problem before. VC++2008 converts the project to new version automatically, so it may not work .

Just try with VC++2005, everything will be ok J

If you wish, I can add your name to the list of beta testers of my
CMake-based build system, which can generate VC 2008/2005/2003 project
files and NMake makefiles.
