SUMMARY

This article describes the 2 items that have changed in Microsoft Visual C/C++ 5.0 from the previous releases.

MORE INFORMATION

Different File Hierarchy

The file hierarchy in Microsoft Visual C/C++ 5.0 is different from that of previous releases in that .dll files were moved from the BIN folder into sub-folders.

Different Default Installation Path

The default installation path is now in the "Program Files" (including the space) folder. Many UNIX utilities (Makedepend) handle spaces in file names poorly, if at all. If there are spaces in the folder name, there are spaces in the value of PATH. The most common symptom that occurs because of this change is that the shell cannot find cc or c89.

To make the Interix SDK work with Microsoft Visual C/C++ 5.0 you must modify your PATH:
  1. Add all of the necessary Microsoft Visual C/C++ folders to your PATH.
  2. Change any pathname component that includes spaces to the 8.3 version of the file name.
