The Hybrid of Windows and Linux

As mentioned previously in “Bad things that OSX is doing”, I had purchased a laptop a few months ago, with the intention of setting up Linux and harden it for my personal use.

WinXP: Missing Registry Key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VisualStudio\SxS\VS7

For whatever reasons the following script in vcvars32.bat was attempting to detect the key in order to be able to run the compiler, but the key was never installed.

How to include JNI Symbols in your DLL

Firstly, use the magic pragma __declspec(dllexport). But this will cause compiler header mismatches between the header and the source files, unless you mangle both of them.

Extra environment settings for Visual Studio

Oh yes, I’ve got plenty to do with Windows these days.
