Steffen,

one question - when I use Visual Studio 2005 to compile Apache2.2, I don't get the new VC8 Manifest and dll's - and they seem not to be neccessary - at least with my binaries. Speed seems comparable as yours.

Strange - sometimes Windows (or MS) really acts weird.

Thanks for all your support,

Lutz

You do not need them if you have .NET framework 2.0 installed.

I have them included in the binary, so users that does not have installed the Framework 2.0 can still run Apache 2.2

I followed the recommendation from Microsoft, see :

Please tell what is weird ?

Weird -- I must confess, most probably only (mainly) me fighting with my programing expertise using the new tools Wink

Thanks for the link - I should spend more time reading the 'right' chapters on MSDN ...

I've worked as a Software QA Tester for years as well as Install Engineer, and one of the first things I learned in testing on MS OS's is: most people are not aware of what exactly happens when most popular IDE's are installed on their systems. In exact, the number of DLL's that are installed and registered without notifying or properly documenting these files and their dependencies (both internally and externally). Hence, the weird things that happen.

More than a few times, I have received builds for testing that would not work properly or at all because file dependencies were not included after an upgrade to the IDE or other necessary inclusion. No big deal, but it sure gets your attention in a hurry. Shocked
