Need to build Python 2.6 with Microsoft Visual Studio 2010

Discussion in 'Python' started by Tom Kacvinsky, Jun 6, 2012.

  1. For reasons beyond my control, I have a need to build Python 2.6 with
    MSVC 2010 (for x64). Does anyone have any hints as to how I can
    accomplish this? I see there are instructions for building Python 2.7
    with MSVC 2010, but those are using the Python 2.7 source as the base
    for patching, so they do me little to no good. My main tripping point
    right now is the deprecation of vcbuild (replaced by msbuild). I can
    run msbuild on the 2.6 solution files:

    msbuild PCbuild\pcbuild.sln /p:Configuration="Release" /
    p:platform="x64"

    but I get all sorts of errors, related to vcbuild not being
    available. Will this be as simple as getting the project/solution
    files up to date for MSVC 2010, or am I going to have to patch a lot
    of code?

    Any and all help is much appreciated

    Thanks in advance,

    Tom
