Oh, hey, look what I just found in svn:
Building MySQL++ for 64-Bit
The MySQL++ Visual Studio project files ship with the assumption
that you're building for 32-bit Windows. While the utility
of running the MySQL server on a 64-bit system is clear, that
doesn't mandate running its client programs in 64-bit mode, too.
As a result, we haven't yet bothered to come up with an easy way
to change this. Here's the hard way:
- Follow the steps above to change the MySQL install location,
- Open the solution file, then say Build > Configuration Manager
- Pull down the "Active solution platform" list box, say New...,
and add "x64", copying settings from the Win32 build, and
allowing it to create new project platforms.
- Pull the same list box down, say Edit..., and remove the Win32
build, unless you actually need both versions.
It should then build, except that you may have to re-run the
build a couple of times, due to errors about the build log being
unwritable or locked. Just re-run the build until you get all of
the projects to build. If re-running the build doesn't reduce
the number of failures, you have something else wrong, perhaps
due to not following the instructions above carefully. It might
be simplest to just blow away the MySQL++ tree and try again.
(I did once, while formulating these instructions...sigh.)
