Ticket #39 (closed defect)
Visual Studio project files are corrupt
|Reported by:||anonymous||Owned by:||gknauf|
I downloaded the tar.gz files for both versions 0.16 and 0.17 and the Visual Studio project files under the win32 directory are all corrupt. Attempting to open up the Visual Studio 6 workspace or project file(s) from Visual Studio 2005 or 2008 gives this error:
"Cannot load the project due to a corrupt project file"
I'm able to open up the project files from the 0.15 tar.gz file just fine. I did a diff on the 0.15 and the 0.17 versions of one of the project files and didn't find anything different. However, I found that if I opened up the project file with something like wordpad, saved it and re-opened it that I was able to then open that project file. Looks like the line endings were probably not saved in a windows-friendly fashion.
