summary: Visual Studio project files (.DSP/.DSW)
class: wish: This is a request for an enhancement.
difficulty: taxing: Needs external things we don't have (standards, users etc)
priority: low: We aren't sure whether to fix this or not.
fixed-in: 2004-01-18 (0.54) (0.55) (0.56) (0.57) (0.58) (0.59) (0.60) (0.61) (0.62)

People occasionally ask us for project/workspace (.DSP/.DSW) files to compile PuTTY with Visual C++, or offer to contribute them.

All of our Makefiles are derived from a single upstream source (Recipe) by a script (mkfiles.pl), so that we don't have to maintain N slightly different Makefiles. Therefore, any contribution would have to take the form of an update to mkfiles.pl and/or Recipe. We won't be able to make use of a .DSP/.DSW file per se, because that brings with it precisely the maintenance burden we're trying to avoid.

Also, we already supply a Visual C Makefile (Makefile.vc), for use with nmake. We're unlikely to add .DSP/.DSW support ourselves because we don't have much use for it.

Update: mkfiles.pl now generates these project files. Many thanks to Joe Yates.
