[Mono-dev] Building Mono from Git with MSVC

I also noticed a couple of issues building a recent tag (3.0.9) with MSVC, mostly trivia but one of them trickier and preventing building x64 on Windows. I'll try to look at it further in the coming month and put a pull request if successful. By the way is it acceptable to migrate the project files to VS2012?

Jonathan do you have a log of the issues you encountered, and with what version/tag of the codebase, what build profile configuration? I did not encounter any issues with libmonoutils.

I get for libmono.vcxproj 64bits
Error      8              error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol __readfsdword referenced in function mono_thread_get_stack_bounds           F:\src\mono\msvc\libmonoruntime.lib(threads.obj)      libmono
I suspect the occurrence of these issues may depend on which version of the Windows SDK is installed.

The MSVC build is kept up-to-date on a volunteer basis, but it's only updated once in a while (usually when one of the people using the MSVC build finds out it's broken).

What this means is that we don't support the MSVC build, but we're happy to get pull requests ;-)

Is the MSVC build supposed to work? I currently need to embed the mono runtime on a MSVC project but building mono fails.

There are missing files on libmonoutils.vcxproj like mono-mutex.c, I managed to build it after adding this file and tweaking some include files.

Isn't the MSVC build supported anymore or should I address a bug report for that(or a pull request)?
