Entlib fails to compile in VS.NET 2005 Beta 2 (sort of)

I was playing around with Whidbey (finally), the Beta 2 drop and decided to check out if Entlib compiles. After converting the project (ping me if you need screen shots), there were a whole bunch of errors. Well, in reality not errors but warnings. Since, by default VS.NET 05 treats warnings as errors, the build fails miserably. Once I got around to setting ignore warnings, it did compile, but I have not gotten much further with it yet due to lack of time – more playing around with that this week. But almost all the failures were due to stuff being deprecated in .NET 2.0. I have both the logs – where things were failing and then the one where I ignore the warnings.

BTW, setting ignore errors on each and every project in the solution is painful, if anyone has a better way of doing it then let me know (and no I did not open the project file and parse to change that setting), but that is the only way then I can write a small piece of tool which can do that.

This blog is my personal blog and while it does reflect my experiences in my professional life, this is just my thoughts. Most of the entries are technical though sometimes they can vary from the wacky to even political – however that is quite rare. Quite often, I have been asked what’s up with the “gibberish” and the funny title of the blog? Some people even going the extra step to say that, this is a virus that infected their system (ahem) well. [:D] It actually is quite simple, and if you have still not figured out then check out this link – whats in a name?
