I am converting Apache.dsw to Apache.sln using vs2013 but some of dependency are getting broken. Can you please anyone assist me to convert it.

Currently I am converting using vs2008 and then the Apache.sln of vs2008 to Apache.sln vs2013 . so I want to skip the conversion through vs2008.

Best Regards,

That 2008 conversion first was for VS 2010 as the Express version would not convert vc6 dsw/dsp files. I also know that on the very rare occation when I do convert in VS 2012, 2015 or 2017 I do not use cvtdsp.pl.

I would first try converting them in vs2013 only and see how it goes. I have had not had good luck using the IDE after 2008 and now use the command line build .mak/.dep files always. To me it's easier and much faster, especially when everything is scripted.

nmake /f makefile.win instdir=\Apache24 installr

As of APR-util 1.6.1, nothing really builds because the person whom made the changes didn't bother to do a complete job on the httpd side so it fails miserably. I just use a patch on httpd & apr-util to get the build back to what it was before when building with apu 1.6.0. That patch was made with the command line build in mind so may not be complete for IDE builds, I forget now since I made it back in October.
