Re: Newly added 'read_resource_string()' function (glib)




Hi John,

as we pointed out early on this cycle we are not going to support XP anymore. So you will have to stick at an earlier release of glib.

Cheers.

I just updated from git master and noticed a newly added function (in 'gio/gwin32appinfo.c') called "read_resource_string()".  The section around line 516 looks like this:-

  resource_module = LoadLibraryExW (filename_str,
                                    0,
                                    LOAD_LIBRARY_AS_DATAFILE |
                                    LOAD_LIBRARY_AS_IMAGE_RESOURCE);

We need to build libglib with MSVC 8.0 but unfortunately, it doesn't contain the symbol 'LOAD_LIBRARY_AS_IMAGE_RESOURCE'.  In any case, MSDN states that LOAD_LIBRARY_AS_IMAGE_RESOURCE isn't supported in anything earlier than Vista (and our app needs to run on XP or higher).

Will it be possible to address these problems in the near future? Thanks.

John
