Visual Studio Compatibility
« on: June 21, 2010, 09:04:33 am »

i have been looking for an IDE that can use VS projects under linux, previously we have used netbeans and had to manually update all the nbproject files which is far from perfect as we have to manage 2 solutions, also netbeans is very pedantic and flaky. SlickEdit says it has VS compatibility and my initial tests looked good. However i have come across an issue which i can't seem to find the answer to, hopefully the many experienced users of SlickEdit can point me in the right direction.

When i build under SlickEdit i get the following :-

devenv C:\magic_carpet\machine\magic_carpet\magic_carpet.sln /build "Debug SGC6A Disabled" /project C:\magic_carpet\machine\magic_carpet\magic_carpet.vcproj /projectconfig "Debug SGC6A Disabled|Win32"

Microsoft (R) Development Environment  Version 7.10.3077.
Copyright (C) Microsoft Corp 1984-2001. All rights reserved.

Invalid solution configuration

The same build under VS :-

------ Build started: Project: magic_carpet, Configuration: Debug SGC6A Disabled Win32 ------


Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions as to why this is not building under SlickEdit.

One thing i should mention is that SlickEdit didn't pick up the project configuration as Debug SGC6A Disabled|Win32 from VS as it should have, i had to manually change this.

The problem here looks to be that the project configuration which is Debug SGC6A Disabled Win32 is also being used as the solution configuration. Is this a know issue?
