Hi, I want to build environment on windows 8. I followed https://allseenalliance.org/docs-and-downloads/documentation/configuring-build-environment-microsoft-windows-xp-and-windows-7#unique_23 I installed environment (MSVS 2010) and I run command:

scons OS=win8 CPU=x86 MSVC_VERSION=10 BINDINGS=""

Result was unsuccessful:

D:\dev\APoC\core\alljoyn>scons OS=win8 CPU=x86 MSVC_VERSION=10.0 BINDINGS=""
scons: Reading SConscript files ...
Building bindings:

How should I execute build in windows 8 correctly? Thanks, Lukas

Please use OS=win7 and then confirm that you are on a 32 bit machine and not a 64 bit one. If you are on 64bit you will need to also use CPU=x86_64

Hi everyone, Is the following documentation still relevant for compiling Alljoyn on Windows 8? https://wwwtst.alljoyn.org/sites/default/files/resources/build_envir_win8-rev-a.pdf Thanks! Thomas.
