OpenOffice Windows builds

Chris Thistlethwaite
Greetings,


Infra has been migrating VMs away from our aging systems in OSU and in the last week we've moved the buildbot for Windows 7 (bb-win7) to a new Windows 10 VM (bb-win10). I've been trying to get all the builds on that machine working and ran into some issues with aoo-win7 and aoo-w741k. Those two builds require Visual Stuido 2008 and some deprecated build tools. We'd like to get those updated to use Visual Studio 2015. Until the builds are updated, they are going to continue to fail.


Please refer to the build errors for details https://ci.apache.org/builders/aoo-win7/builds/657/steps/configure/logs/stdio

So this means, the buildbot is completely unusable for the 4.1.4 branch. I  
don't know if we use the BB for release. If yes, we have to search for an  
other solution :-(.

For the 4.2.0 it means, tat we have to switch to VisualStudio 2015. Before  
the BB is also completely unusable.

So we have actually just the Linux BB's and a Free BSD? That's no good  
news.

Regards, Raphael

We never used a buildbot for building releases.

That said, I'm not actually sure about the version of Visual Studio that
can work for building on Windows. It would help if someone can tell Infra.

It's Visual Studio 08. But Infra is not willing to install such old  
version on a new VM. But to be honest, we have to move forward anyway. We  
can't stick with VS 2008 much longer.

The reason for the first build breaker is probably just, that the  
configure can't get the version number of the MSVC. I did some analyses,  
but to dig deeper, I have to install VS 2015 on my own computer.

Regards, Raphael

Hi Raphael,

The FreeBSD-BuildBot has been turned off last month...

FWIW,

Porting OpenOffice to MSVC 2015 is not an easy task, porting to MSVC
2010, OTOH should be reasonably simpler and likely doable.

I am not volunteering though :-P.

Pedro.
