For conditions of distribution and use, see copyright notice in png.h Assumptions: * The libpng source files are in ..\.. * The zlib source files are in ..\..\..\zlib * The zlib project file is in . /* Warning: This is until the zlib project files get intergrated into the next zlib release. The final zlib project directory will then be ..\..\..\zlib\projects\visualc71. */ To use: 1) On the main menu, select "File | Open Solution". Open "libpng.sln". 2) Display the Solution Explorer view (Ctrl+Alt+L) 3) Set one of the project as the StartUp project. If you just want to build the binaries set "libpng" as the startup project (Select "libpng" tree view item + Project | Set as StartUp project). If you want to build and test the binaries set it to "pngtest" (Select "pngtest" tree view item + Project | Set as StartUp project) 4) Select "Build | Configuration Manager...". Choose the configuration you wish to build. 5) Select "Build | Clean Solution". 6) Select "Build | Build Solution (Ctrl-Shift-B)" This project builds the libpng binaries as follows: * Win32_DLL_Release\libpng13.dll DLL build * Win32_DLL_Debug\libpng13d.dll DLL build (debug version) * Win32_DLL_ASM_Release\libpng13.dll DLL build using ASM code * Win32_DLL_ASM_Debug\libpng13d.dll DLL build using ASM (debug version) * Win32_DLL_VB\libpng13vb.dll DLL build for Visual Basic, using stdcall * Win32_LIB_Release\libpng.lib static build * Win32_LIB_Debug\libpngd.lib static build (debug version) * Win32_LIB_ASM_Release\libpng.lib static build using ASM code * Win32_LIB_ASM_Debug\libpngd.lib static build using ASM (debug version) Notes: If you change anything in the source files, or select different compiler settings, please change the DLL name to something different than any of the above names. Also, make sure that in your "pngusr.h" you define PNG_USER_PRIVATEBUILD and PNG_USER_DLLFNAME_POSTFIX according to the instructions provided in "pngconf.h". All DLLs built by this project use the Microsoft dynamic C runtime library MSVCR71.DLL (MSVCR71D.DLL for debug versions). If you distribute any of the above mentioned libraries you may have to include this DLL in your package. For a list of files that are redistributable in Visual Studio see $(VCINSTALLDIR)\redist.txt.
