ARM Platform Support for Visual Studio 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was trying to build Alljoyn source for arm target machine (windows phone) and met the following error:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\VC\INCLUDE\crtdefs.h(404) :   fatal error C1189: #error :  Compiling Desktop applications for the ARM platform  is not supported.

    I tried to change the definition in crtdefs.h:


    And then I realized that several libs are missing: setupapi winmm iphlpapi secur32 bcrypt hcrypt crypt32

    I installed both Windows 8.1 SDK and Visual Studio 2013 SDK, and after that I saw those missing libs in both folders

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.1\Lib\winv6.3\um\x86


    C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.1\Lib\winv6.3\um\x64

    but not

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.1\Lib\winv6.3\um\arm

    I'd like to know what libdir should I include to resolve this, or if there's recent supports/hotfixes for this issue? Thanks!

  • Hi cwangtw,

    This forum is for questions about Visual Studio Extension. Based on my understanding, your problem is about building a 3rd-party VC++ project in VS, and has little to do with VS integrate. Maybe VC++ forum or Windows Phone forum is better, but I'm not sure, so I'll move it to [where is this forum for...] where the morderator may direct you do the right place.

    Thanks for your understanding.
