Trying to compile ssh2
Date: Fri, 27 Feb 2009 10:08:06 -0800 (PST)
Hello there. I've been using Andrei Jakab's pdf manual "Using-libcurl-with-SSH-support-in-Visual-Studio-2008.pdf. I was able to install OpenSSL fine. But I am unable to compile libssh2. I know there have been version updates since this manual has been written, but it seems that the differences I encountered were minor enough to not make a difference. But, hey, what do I know?
I am using openssl-0.9.8i and libssh2-1.0
I still had to add #undef OCSP_RESPONSE in ossl_typ.h for openssl.
When I opened up libssh2.dsw the file structure displayed exactly as illustrated in the pdf. The libssh__config.h file now only has 42 lines instead of over 60, but the defines Andrei wants in the file are already there and I commented out the define for zlib. The ifdef condition these defines exist in has changed from _MSC_VER to #if _MSC_VER < 1500.
I say all of this just to provide detail. I also commented out the __declspec line in the API define.
To avoid clutter in this message, I've posted the compiler output here:
It shows that libssh2_lib compiled fine. Then, at line 40, it tries to compile libssh2_dll. This confuses me since I thought this was a static build, but anyway, I get the same error for the same line of code 16 times:
Cannot open include file: 'openssl/opensslconf.h': No such file or directory
So, this makes me question the project properties. My Additional Include Directories read so ..\include;C:\openssl_lib\include;..\win32
In Librarian\General the OutputFile is Debug_lib\libssh2.lib The Additional Dependencies are set to "libeay32.lib ssleay32.lib" -- without the quotes.
Probably most important is the Additional Library Directories and that is set to C:\openssl_lib\lib I've gone into this folder and confirmed that I do have openssl/opensslconf.h -- is the forward slash making a difference somehow?
The compiler then attempts to build simple.c and I am unsure of those errors also, but all of that might depend on the failure preceeding it.
I appreciate all and any help.
