Well, I have given this my best try and I still can't get Livecode to build successfully on Windows. It seems as though there are a lot of files missing. I am running under Windows 7 64 bit. I have installed VS2005 Pro and installed all the prerequisites ( at least the ones I could find. The hot fix for Visual Studio is no longer available. I was able to find it from another source. Microsoft Speech SDK 4.0 link is broken. I couldn't find it on the web.).
Most of the errors I encountered revolved around the "prebuilts" folder, which by the way, doesn't have anything prebuilt. However, I did find the "build-libs" windows script. This script builds the Openssl, Curl, and ICU(which is required for unicode support) libraries.
Unfortunately, this script fails to run. After some debugging I realized that I first needed to install "perl" and "cygwin". That worked to a point but then came the show stopper. There is no "Revolution.exe" program to run part of the script.
I really would like to get this working.
Any suggestions? I am willing to work with anyone on this issue.
