  • “DLL Release”
  • “DLL Debug”
  • “Static Release”
  • “Static Debug”

One of these option has to be used while calling the makefile (VC6 only). VS solution files are given for VC8 and VC9.


This step describe the process for Visual C++ 6. It should work for VC and VC7/8/9 as well but it is not yet tested. However you can use the solutions files with vc8 or vc9.

cd c:\build_php_deps\libxpm-3.5.7\windows\vc6
nmake /f libxpm.mak CFG="Static Release"
